Expo Milano 2015 is in Rio to kick off its global dialogue on food and energy. During a side event on June 21, CEO Giuseppe Sala gives an overview of the Expo 2015 that will run from May to October in Milan, Italy.
Titled âFeeding the planet, energy for lifeâ, the Expo aims at stimulating and leading a global discussion on the challenges linked to food production, safety, availability and nutrition. âExpo Milano will reflect the need of raising global questions rather than just proposing solutions. Its focus on food security is inextricably linked to the priority areas identified by the Rio+20 conference on sustainable development, as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon stressed today when he spoke about the âZero Hunger Challengeâ.â Sala says.
Expo Milano will be home to an estimated 140 countries; 87 have already formally confirmed participation.
