The United Nations will have a dedicated pavilion at next year’s World Expo in Dubai under the theme, ‘We the Peoples: Shaping Our Future Together’, as part of the commemoration of its 75th anniversary.
The United Nations’ participation provides an opportunity to reach millions of visitors, in person and in virtual space, to inspire engagement in and around Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The theme of the pavilion was announced by Maher Nasser, Commissioner-General of the United Nations at Expo 2020 Dubai. It connects the opening words of the Charter of the United Nations adopted in 1945, ‘We the Peoples’, with the 75th-anniversary theme of ‘Shaping Our Future Together’.
“We are very grateful to the Government and people of the UAE, and the organisers, for the opportunity to be part of Expo 2020 and for the generous support provided,” said Nasser.
