The theme of the Expo is : Sustainable City - Sustainable Future
The theme explores the ideas behing urbanisation and how it impacts the earth and how we can lessen that impact.
All pavilions use at least 60% recycled or reclaimed material to adhere to the requirements. Also all non permanent pavilions are to be recycled and in some cases sold and rebuilt elsewhere.
To help make the city more green over 2 million street lights and traffic lights have energy saving bulbs that use renewable energy from the sun or wind.
Also all wastewater will be used to clean and water plants at the site.
And the Expo park will have green busses and taxi's that run on electricity or hydrogen.
Now for a video showcasing some of the opening ceremony and fireworks display. (Please ignore all the refernces to the Shanghai expo)
Thankyou for watching, the pavilions will be showcased at a later date
