The UK is participating at the World Expo 2015 in Milan from 1 May to 31 October. Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life is the core theme. It aims to highlight one of the most pressing challenges of our time – how to feed and sustain an expected rise in the world’s population to 9 billion by 2050.

145 nations are participating including the UK’s major political and trading partners. Milan Expo 2015 offers a global platform to promote UK international agendas and showcase British innovation, creativity and global leadership.

The UK’s participation theme for Milan Expo is Grown in Britain and Northern Ireland, led by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) with support from 7 government departments.

The UK is creating a stand-out Pavilion inspired by the role of the bee in the global ecosystem and offering visitors a unique experiential journey. It also forms the platform for a 6 month global programme of UK business events and cultural activities, linked to the challenge of feeding the planet.
