It’s the final day of our A Milan Expo Pavilion Every Day series, and the final contributor to Expo that we’re bringing you is the United Nations.
As you walk around the Expo, you’ll often come across a blue spoon, whether that be in Pavilion Zero, in the Future Food District, the Cascina Triulza, or in one of the nine Clusters. However, the true introduction to the UN and its Zero Hunger Challenge (which you can read about here) comes in the UN Garden. Located near Pavilion Zero and the main entrance to Expo, the garden is a relaxing place with a mega screen showing the main UN themes and an overview of UN programmes, as well as a giant UN spoon which visitors can walk or sit on. There is also an installation featuring wooden crops and more little blue spoons to show the importance of cultivating the practice of working together and to address the pillars of the Zero Hunger Challenge. Throughout Expo, the UN hopes to show visitors the important work that it carries out every day, as well as sharing the message that it is possible to end hunger in our lifetime, as long as we all work together.
Thanks for following us on our journey through the Milan Expo pavilions – remember you can visit Expo until the 31st October, and you can find more information and tickets on the official Expo website.
