Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life

Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life

EXPO Milano 2015 will close its doors on October 31, 2015. The Universal Exhibition is showcasing achievements that societies have made and share new technologies as well as promote creativity and engagement at a global level. By following the theme, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”, over 140 participating countries are showing their commitment to creating sustainable ways of producing and delivering food across the globe.

The United Nations (UN) is also participating in Expo Milano 2015 under the theme, “The Zero Hunger Challenge. United for a Sustainable World.” The Zero Hunger Challenge is a call-to-action, based on the wish of the UN Secretary General Ban-ki Moon to encourage decision makers to focus their attention on hunger, nutrition and sustainable agriculture. An integral part of the Zero Hunger Challenge, the issue of women’s empowerment and gender equality, is a key focus area for the UN at Expo Milano 2015.

PENETRON played a vital role in ensuring the timely completion and durability of some of the infrastructure for EXPO Milano 2015, and the city of Milan. Have a look at the case study ‘ZARA EXPO Tunnel‘ under PENETRON Worldwide.
