one fluid world
In a live-streamed interview from the exhibition site at EXPO 2017, Georg Castlunger is giving a key note about technology innovation and core messages from Astana World Expo, taking place in Kazakhstan.
What is the most impressive from EXPO2017?
Everything is so technological! It’s really jumping into the next Universe and getting to know the general theme ‘Future Energy’. The Kazakh pavilion is a Sphere, ‘Nur Alem’ which is 100m high and 80m in diameter at 8 floors. Every floor has a theme how to source the energy of the future. From the wind to water power, kinetic energy, human energy and how to create the exciting already energy for resources in the future. Countries present case studies, each one has their specific approach.
What are the core messages about ‘Future Energy’ theme?
Create energy out of your own resources! The visitors of the Austrian stand creates energy while interacting with the pavilion: while breathing, cycling, pushing and pulling stuff. A core message completely different from the other technological solutions.
How about visitor’s digital experience?
Screens talk to you in your native language automatically in the German pavilion! The more knowledge you learn from the pavilion, the more points you earn and you can even challenge other visitors.
‘Connecting minds’ in Dubai EXPO2020 is the next general theme of our World.
