Getting Ready for Expo 2000

United Nations signs agreement to join Expo 2000 in Germany

(Everything2000) It is being called the largest international exposition ever held and it kicks off in Germany this June. The world will be watching this Millennium event, and now the United Nations will be participating along with 200 other countries and organizations. The UN just signed an agreement of participation with Hannover, Germany where the event will take place.

The theme of the world Expo for year 2000 is "Humankind, Nature, Technology. The United Nations plans to highlight all it’s state-of-the-art technology to document the work of UN organizations. A grant of 4.5 million German marks will fully cover the United Nations’ costs for the Expo. Four German corporations are providing the money.

The United Nations has a long history of active participation in international expositions, beginning with the 1950 Haiti Expo, and has since successfully participated in 14 others. At Expo 2000 in Hannover, the United Nations pavilion will be immediately adjacent to the main entrance and directly face One World Expo Plaza: the main events stadium and the major focal point for all commemorative activities, performances and celebrations.

Expo 2000 is expected to attract between 40 and 50 million visitors over a period of five months. Organizers say that the models and projects to be presented by nations, corporations and organizations will look ahead to what is going to happen to the world of technology and nature.

The exposition will have an additional component dubbed the Thematic Areas and the Projects all over the World.

In the Thematic Area, it is intended that visitors will experience concrete proposals for solutions to the global challenges of the 21st century ranging from a "factory that does not pollute the air to an ear implant for children who are born deaf".

The Projects all over the World are the extended workbench of the Thematic Area. At hundreds of different locations, commercial companies and non-profit- making organizations will be demonstrating how visions can be turned into reality.

Countries participating feel the Expo will attract attention to their area. Singapore is spending $10 million to promote itself at the Expo. Singapore wants to be seen as a dynamic and successful city-stateand as a gateway to the Asia-Pacific region.
