Workshops for Educators

Expo 2020’s Teacher Workshops introduce educators to Expo 2020 Dubai by exploring concepts and content relating to our theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ and sub-themes ‘Opportunity, Mobility, Sustainability’. The workshops prepare teachers to engage learners through interactive sessions that excite students about Expo 2020 Dubai and build an understanding of Expo’s vision and legacy.

For the academic year 2018-2019, we offer 6 exciting workshops for educators.


Intro to Expo 2020 Dubai

This is an introductory session to Expo 2020 for schools and teachers that are engaging with Expo 2020 for the first time. This workshop explains what a World Expo is, why Expo 2020 is important, the history of World Expos, UAE’s participation in World Expos, & exploring important innovations from World Expos.

Future Careers & Future Cities

65% of young people today will work in careers that do not yet exist. How can young people prepare for and develop skills for future careers? By 2050, more than 70% will be living in an urban setting. Moving into the future, how can we make our cities happier and more inclusive spaces to live & work?

Expo Live and the Social Impact of Expo 2020 Dubai

How do we create opportunity for humans as well as the species with whom we share the planet? We need to find ways to generate energy, grow our foods, & build our cities in ways that do not draw from the earth’s natural reserves, but instead draw from humanity’s powerful reserve of concern, compassion and creativity.

Dynamic Biosphere

The UAE region boasts hundreds of species of birds, rare mammals and endemic plants and reptiles across UAE’s stunning ecosystem. From dunes to mountains, from wadis to palm-studded oases, flora across the UAE’s landscapes demonstrate the creativity of life living among the most delicate ecosystems on the planet.

The World in Circles

The workshop represents the impact of the circular economy on our lives. It means materials can be renewed and restored around a ‘closed loop’ system, rather than being used once and then discarded. Important steps are being taken globally to ensure that we live more sustainably, in balance with the earth.

3D Innovation

This workshop will explore how 3D technology and 3D printing will change the way we work and live in the future. This workshop will be conducted at the Expo 2020 Visitor Centre.
