Global Mind. Adventure Film

The concept of "globalization" affects nearly every corner of the world. Indeed, modern technologies have "shrunk" the corners of the Earth. However, three-quarters of the world lack online access. Left behind by the electronic revolution, they are unable to share their experiences, their lives, their cultures, their dreams.

Ten students from Russia want to change that.

With support from the Ekaterinburg Expo 2020 Bid Committee, a city trying to win the rights to host the World Expo in 2020 under the theme "The Global Mind," these students have gone from Ekaterinburg (Russia's fourth largest city straddling the border of Europe and Asia) to four far-flung countries (Panama, Namibia, Indonesia, and Mongolia). During the summer 2012, the student teams spent time in four remote villages where there was virtually no existing communication link with the "rest of the world."

These adventurous students installed internet connections through satellite connections and provided computers to the residents. Now these villagers can communicate among themselves, with their newfound friends (the student team from Ekaterinburg) and with the rest of the world. Thanks to The Global Mind Adventure, they are discovering other communities, and sharing their own culture.

The UAE delegation attended the General Assembly meeting of the Bureau International des Expositions along with the delegations from the other four countries bidding to host 2020 World Expo on Thursday. Delegations from 161 member countries are participating in the meeting.

The World Expo, one of the oldest and largest international events established before a century and a half, takes place every five years in different cities around the globe and lasts for six months. It has never been hosted so far by an Arab country in its history of over 150 years.

Dubai is one of five cities competing to host the World Expo in 2020. The other candidate cities include: Ayutthaya (Thailand); Ekaterinburg (Russia); Izmir (Turkey); and Sao Paulo (Brazil).

The chairman of the Higher Committee for Hosting the 2020 World Expo in Dubai made a final inspection of the UAE pavilion running concurrently with the General Assembly meetings. The pavilions at the exhibition showcase the infrastructure of each bidding city to substantiate its claim of the ability to host the global event. The exhibition is part of the effort to win the votes of the 161 member states in the amalgamation.

A Brazilian reporter mentioned that the two presentations that were better evaluated by the local committee were São Paulo and Izmir. Link to the article (in portuguese) here.

He also mentioned that the city of Izmir had already tried to host the event for 2015, when it lost to Milan. I believe this gives them an edge (second try is usually a better version), but let's see!

This presentation is the third of five opportunities the UAE will have to formally support its bid to the BIE in the lead up to the November 2013 selection of the host nation for the Expo. The night preceding the presentation, the Expo 2020 team welcomed members of the international diplomatic community, including BIE officials, to a special Expo 2020 reception at the Palais Garnier to celebrate the country’s bid.

Understandably the Portugese paper is biased towards Brazil. It's not over until the 5th and final presentation.

By Scott Shuey, Deputy Business Editor

Bill Gates endorses UAE Expo 2020 bid

Surprises sprung during Paris presentation include subway system for exhibition area

By Scott Shuey, Deputy Business Editor
Published: 15:54 November 23, 2012


Paris: Microsoft founder Bill Gates has endorsed the UAE’s bid to host the Expo 2020, it was announced in Paris on Thursday evening.

UAE’s presentation to the International Exhibition Bureau to host the Expo 2020 included a few surprises on Thursday, such as a subway system for the exhibition area and a personal endorsement from Gates.

All five of the cities bidding for the event gave 20-minute presentations at the Paris Headquarters of The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) on Thursday. UAE’s presentation was given by Reem Al Hashemi, Minister of State. The UAE delegation to the IEB was lead by Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Expo 2020 Higher Committee.

“We are proud of history, but we also have a clear vision of our future,” Al Hashemi said. “We are committed to delivering an unforgettable World Expo.” She also called it “the whole nation’s bid”.


...............


The surprise event of the show was the appearance of Microsoft Founder Bill Gates, who is also the founder and co-chair of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest private foundation. Gates spokes of his visit to the 1964 world’s fair in Seattle, and the effect that it had on sparking innovation in the Seattle area.

Gates also gave his personal endorsement of Dubai’s bid, saying the city “would be a great location to host a World Expo”.

Al Hashemi said if Dubai wins its bid for the Expo, it would tentatively be scheduled for October 21 and run until April 21, with the event’s ending coinciding with the begining of the celebrations for the UAE’s 50th National Day.

After the Expo is finished, Dubai plans to turn the pavilion grounds into a research and development centre or a University.

Dubai is scheduled to present its completed dossier for its Expo 2020 bid on December 3, at which time additional information, such as the proposed budget to build the exhibition centre and upgrade any infrastructure, would be announced.

This was the third set of presentations to the International Exhibition Bureau. Two more presentation are scheduled before the announcement of the winner, which is likely to happen in October 2013.

Other cities competing to host the Expo 2020 include Sao Paulo, Brazil; Ayatthaya, Thailand; Izmir, Turkey, and Ekaterinburg, Russia.

Many at the conference have written off Brazil’s chances of winning their Expo 2020 bid because the country’s winning bids for the Olympics Games and Fifa World Cup.

Of the remaining three, Al Tayer said Ekaterinburg and Izmir offer the toughest competing bids.

“Are all them are strong, but Russia and Turkey are our biggest competitors.”
