Many are the themes addressed in the contributions by the Partners and Sponsors of the Italy Pavilion in the last of the pre-Expo global events, the series of digital events organized to give, one year in advance, a preview of the debate on the main themes of the Universal Expo at Dubai, which will kick off next 1st of October.
“How can we protect our most precious resource today for tomorrow?”: this is the question that the organizers and Participating Countries and Organizations attempted to answer at the last event scheduled on 23 March: “Water”, a preview of the themes that will be addressed at the Universal Expo from 20 to 25 March 2022, in one of the weeks richest in original contents.
At the “Water Week” of Expo 2020 Dubai, the Italy Pavilion will be spearheading the initiatives of its Partners, such as the one promoted by the Consiglio Nazionale Forense
(the Italian National Bar Association) inviting Participating Countries
to sign a document committing them to share the resources and
technologies with a view to assuring every human being access to water.
Or the project launched in partnership by the Milano-Bicocca University and the government of the Maldives to preserve the biodiversity of the coral reef, the fruit of the cooperation between the MaRHE research and higher education centre and the Maldives Marine Research Institute, which will be given ample space among the initiatives on the agenda of the Italian Commissioner’s Office.
