The theme for Expo 2020 Dubai is ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ – a reflection of our belief that innovation and progress are the result of people and ideas combining in novel ways.

The subthemes of the Expo – Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability – are three driving forces that embody our dreams and challenges and will shape the world of today and tomorrow.


Is about unlocking the potential within individuals and communities to shape the future.

Creating opportunity for the growing global population is one of the key challenges of our times. That’s why the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals have placed a focus on equitable and high quality education, inclusive growth, the reduction of inequality and good governance across the world.

Topics include: New industries, employment, education, financial capital, governance


Examines the creation of smarter and more productive movement of people, goods and ideas.

Mobility spans every delivery mechanism from physical logistics and transport, the built environment and supporting infrastructure to virtual communications and visionary innovations.

Every week more than one million people move into towns and cities – increasing our potential to connect more productively. The way in which we move within those urban areas is changing as existing technology like video conferencing matures, and new technologies like driverless cars emerge.

Topics include: Logistics, transportation, personal mobility, travel and exploration, digital connectivity


Looks at ways that we can respect and live in balance with the world we inhabit.

The growing human population places an increased burden on our planet.

Around the world, researchers are exploring alternative sources of clean and renewable energy, water conservation, saltwater-based agriculture, biodiversity sanctuaries and expanding frameworks for the transition to a low-carbon economy, as well as stimulating the development of human capital in science, technology, engineering and related disciplines.

Topics include: Natural ecosystems and biodiversity, sustainable cities and built habitats, resources, climate change, green growth
