People on the Move

Mobility is the bridge to opportunity by connecting people, goods and ideas and providing easier access to markets, knowledge and innovation. Human curiosity and ingenuity have propelled us further and faster, and young people are growing up in a world of unprecedented movement and dynamism. Expo 2020’s Mobility vision is a commitment to showcase smarter and more productive movement—both physical and virtual—as we speed into the future. Human mobility is part of our DNA and has shaped the planet for the past 200,000 years. For centuries, trading routes have enabled people to share cultures, languages and foods, bringing ideas together and generating creativity.  Today, the global movement of people creates unprecedented connectivity and new possibilities.
