Sustainability District

The Expo 2020 Dubai’s Sustainability District showcases innovative ideas that aim to shape a more sustainable future. Various pavilions will debut future-centric sustainability concepts using some of the most advanced technology in the world.

For the first time ever in World Expo history, Rovers can peruse dedicated country pavilions with captivating exhibitions including 3D greenery experiences, illuminated digital forests, and more. Shop for souvenirs, discover delectable international cuisine, and enjoy live performances while learning about various cultures and exciting innovations.

Taking centre stage at the Sustainability District is Terra, the Sustainability Pavilion. At an incredible 6,300 sqm in size, Terra promotes immersive experiences, ecology, and sustainable technologies. The structure generates its own water and electricity through condensation in the air and the use of 1,050 solar panels.

Immersive educational experiences that Rovers can look forward to include strolling through the “Wood Wide Web” and observing how trees share resources and protect each other. Additionally, the infamous “Gnasher” demonstrates how natural resources are demolished for the production of consumer products. Rovers visiting Terra can also enjoy a whirlwind of additional experiences geared towards climate change and lack of biodiversity.
