Belgium's 'Green Ark' Set for Expo 2020!
October 22nd 2020 should already be in your diary! This will mark the opening of Expo 2020 in Dubai which will run for 6 months into 2021.
This is the first World Expo to be held in the UAE and aims to leave a meaningful and lasting legacy. This unique event will celebrate Culture, Collaboration and Innovation.
There will be a series of pavilions representing a huge number of countries from around the globe. The Belgian 'Green Ark' pavilion includes a host of sustainable innovations and will include 10,000 plants.
It will draw on renewable resources to feed its energy needs, smart technologies to feed its plants and the country’s world-class cuisine to feed its guests.
Covered in lush greenery, the ark-inspired pavilion is designed to produce more energy than it consumes. Visitors will have the opportunity to interact with a host of Belgian innovations while treating themselves to some of the nation’s tastiest culinary specialties – including its world-famous fries, known as frietjes.
