When you think about Dubai, the term ‘green’ probably doesn’t come to mind. But with Dubai’s changing policies and new investments into renewables, ‘green’ is becoming part of Dubai’s legacy. The city is taking significant steps towards becoming one of the most sustainable cities in the world. Just over a decade ago, Dubai was a city with one of the largest ecological impacts worldwide. For a city that also used to rely primarily on oil revenues, the transition to green sustainability is more than impressive.
Expo 2020 will be one of the most significant events in Dubai’s modern history.

The theme for Expo 2020 is Connecting Minds, Creating the Future. It will be an exposition of innovation, ingenuity, and collective human potential such as the world has never seen before.
