Today, Expo Milano 2015 is launching a public call addressed to all African Countries. The aim of the competition "Energy, Art & Sustainability for Africa," promoted by Expo 2015 S.p.A. in collaboration with Eni (Official Partner for Sustainability Initiatives in African Countries), is to receive proposals for events to be realized within the exhibition site from 12 to 27 September 2015.
With this initiative, the Universal Exposition aims at promoting the African continent through programmed events capable of enhancing the visitors’ experience within the exhibition site. Through conventions, seminars, workshops, conferences, talk shows, entertainment and exhibitions, visitors will be given the possibility to increase their knowledge of Africa, discovering its history and potentialities.
Owing to these cultural and scientific events, both the African States present in the nine Clusters and the national Pavilions of Expo Milano 2015 and those not participating in the event will have the opportunity to promote resources and skills developed in the sectors of nutrition, agriculture, and economic growth connected to sustainable development.
The aim of the call launched by Expo Milano 2015 is to put the African continent at the centre of visitors’ experience, also through entertainment and meetings, transforming the Universal Exposition into an actual international stage for sharing knowledge and suggesting solutions as regards the challenges set by the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life."
Proposals can be submitted until 18 June. All information is available on www.expo2015.org.
For the realization of the call, Expo 2015 S.p.A. is supported by Eni which, for years now, has been standing out for its steady commitment in promoting sustainable development and access to energy in the African Countries. Besides collaborating with the communities and institutions present on the territory, Eni contributes in reducing energy poverty through infrastructures for the production, transport and distribution of gas, the construction of power stations and the promotion of projects dedicated to rural electrification.
