The Japan Association for the 2025 World Expositions has decided on the official name of the Cyber Expo (tentative name) as “EXPO COMMONS”.
In addition, “EXPO Co-creation project”, which uses “EXPO COMMONS” as a platform and links the actions in the “TEAM EXPO 2025” programs, has been launched within the Future Society Showcase projects to promote initiatives that integrate the real and the virtual exposition.
EXPO COMMONS is a platform that utilizes virtual space where people around the world think, meet together, exchange opinions, and engage in communication and community activities to take individual action in order to solve social issues.
The EXPO Co-creation project aims to create a movement in the world by providing opportunities for people around the world, including people engaging in the TEAM EXPO 2025 program, to think, meet together, exchange opinions and take individual action to solve social issues, and for everyone to participate in the Expo 2025 for realization of the future they envision. Each activity will be shared at the “EXPO COMMONS”, connecting active communities regardless of physical distance, with the aim of creating new actions. Although sponsorship has been sought as ‘Cyber Expo (tentative name)’, the ‘EXPO Co-creation office’ will be set up and the recruitment will continue from now as an “EXPO Co-creation project.”
