Expo Milano 2015

If you’re in or around Milan this summer, try to attend Expo 2015!

Expo 2015 is the Universal Exposition currently being hosted by Milan, Italy. The Expo opened on May 1st and is scheduled to run through October. Held every five years, the event provides participating countries with a venue to reinforce international relations, and a platform to exchange ideas, information and inspiration for solving global needs. It’s a tremendous effort to embrace technology, innovation and culture, and create a more healthy world for all its inhabitants.

This year, 144-countries representing 94-percent of the world’s population and three international organizations will be attending the Expo over the six month duration. And, more than 20-million visitors are expected to visit the event themed “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” which hopes to ignite discussions on hunger, food waste, and poor nutrition, and to encourage sustainable lifestyles.

Here are some photos from my visit to this extraordinary event.
