The overarching theme for our participation in Expo 2020 will be: Island of Inspiration – putting creativity at the centre of human experience in the 21st century. Through our pavilion and programme, we will show how creativity drives human connection and community, on a global as well as a local scale. There will be a focus on Renewal, reflecting our commitment to post-pandemic international solidarity, looking at equitably shared economic recovery, global health and wellbeing, and sustainability.
