■ About Theme Weeks
“Theme Weeks” are the initiative aimed at “Designing Future Society for Our Lives” together with the world by taking advantage of the characteristics of the Expo, where countries from all over the world gather in the same place for six months, bringing together wisdom to solve global issues and exploring solutions through dialogue. A “Dialogue Program” that discusses global issues on a weekly basis and the “Business Exchange” that puts it into practice. That is an opportunity for the organizers, Official Participants (participating countries), Japanese and local governments, Co-creation business participants, and Expo participants such as exhibiting companies, local governments and industries all over the country to come together and discuss solutions.
