Expo 2005, which will be held in Aichi, Japan, will focus on "the marvelous mechanism of nature and the power of life," bringing together the nations, regions, private enterprises, independent citizens, NPOs and NGOs, and volunteers that form the backbone of global society. The site for the Expo is being constructed with minimal impact on the environment, including site planning, operation, and transportation.
The Expo will also focus on technologies necessary for building an eco-community, such as recycling technologies, new energy sources, and natural energy development. For example, exhibition pavilions are modular and easy to assemble, dismantle and reuse. Reduction, reuse, and recycling will be considered throughout all activities and events. The use the Tobu Kyuryo public railway, which has little environmental impact, is being strongly promoted, and improvements are being made to the local loop line. Additionally, low-pollution transportation will be used on the site grounds.
And of course, participatory and experimental environmental education programs, events, and consortiums are planned. The expo will be held MArch 25-September 25, 2005. Learn more @ ::World Expo 2005 [by MO]
