This is the official page for European Union participation in Expo Milano 2015
“For the European Union, Expo Milano will be both a platform to reach out to our citizens and for a more interactive approach to policy development.”
José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission
Expo Milano 2015 is a Universal exposition which will take place in Milan from 1 May to 31 October 2015.
The Theme of Expo Milano 2015, "Feeding the planet, energy for life"brings forward a truly global challenge: is it possible to ensure sufficient, good, healthy and sustainable food for all mankind?
This edition of the Expo is meant to become a milestone of planetary debate on food and sustainability and will be a platform for political discussions and policy initiatives on these issues.
The theme cuts across several EU policies, including: agriculture; industry; trade; development and humanitarian aid; food safety and quality; energy; climate change, environment; education and last but not least, research and innovation.
Expo Milan 2015 therefore represents a unique opportunity for the EU to reinforce its role as a global actor in the global discussion about the evergrowing issues of food and sustainability.
