You can sample food from all over the world, learn about cultures, people, and see what it would be like to visit the wonders of the world without leaving Dubai.  
The core theme of Expo 2020 is a combination of three micro themes that includes, sustainability, opportunity and mobility. 

1) Sustainability Pavilion

Climate changes and issues like global warming has long threatened our world, however, few are eager to solve and provide a solution for a much balanced world to live in for the many generations to come. The sustainability pavilion is, therefore, developed to create awareness campaign to combat global climate change.

The opportunity Pavilion focuses on allowing the need for all races to grow and prosper. Opportunity should be open to all and with the focus on technology and business opportunities allowing people to connect minds and create a better future for all.
