The World Expo, an unmissable international event

The first World Exhibition was held in 1851 in London. It was called « The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations. » Born at the dawn of the industrial revolution, it was intended to educate the public to the culture of the machines and mechanics and to secure peace, brotherhood and solidarity worldwide by leveraging the promotion of free trade.
One of the most famous world exhibitions was in Paris in 1889, famous because of the creation of the Eiffel Tower.

Feeding the planet: a key issue for the millennium

The theme of Expo 2015 is « Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. » It is a subject that underlines the basic human right to access to enough food, and the importance of a healthy and balanced nutrition. This theme also reflects the first of the eight Millennium Development Goals set up in 2000 by UN member states: « Reducing extreme poverty and hunger ».

The rapid growth of the world population makes the development of a long-term vision in the field of food production even more vital. One of the goals of this World Exhibition is to present the most effective techniques to achieve this ambitious purpose.

The clusters are exhibition spaces that bring together several countries around a theme. There are two types of clusters: food clusters (rice, tubers and cereals, coffee, cocoa, spices etc) and thematic clusters (sea and islands, bio-Mediterranean, desert etc).

In future articles we will discuss the single clusters in details.
