Hello 2020 - Newletter n15 September 2013

Welcome to September's Hello 2020. In this issue we highlight the exciting initiative launched by Dubai Expo 2020 that aims to unite the world's brightest minds in finding solutions to global challenges.

Expo Live, backed by the 100 million-euro Partnership Fund, will support projects of different sizes and scope to create significant progress within communities around the world.

Elsewhere, Dr Eduardo Behrentz, Founding Director of the Urban and Regional Sustainability Study Group of Bogota's Los Andes University, explains how the Dubai Expo bid's subthemes of Sustainability and Mobility could benefit Latin America's fast-growing urban population and why it is time to explore city transportation issues afresh.

We also learn how the UAE's unique geographic position and world-class infrastructure will draw people of all nations to its doors, while offering particular opportunities to those from the MENASA (Middle East, North Africa and South Asia) region.
