This value influenced numerous aspects of planning for Expo 2020 Dubai, currently underway at the Dubai Exhibition Centre, and it con- 32 tinues to affect this important national achievement.

With the participation of 192 countries from around the world, Expo 2020Dubai is not only engaging and collaborating with youth, but also cementing the foundations for a knowledge-based economy that will provide opportunities for current and future generations. The three subthemes – Mobility, Sustainability, and Opportunity– are all about encouraging the creation of a better, more sustainable, and inclusive future for the coming generations.

Expo 2020 Dubai will close its doors by the end of March 2022, but it will be far from being forgotten.
