United Nations Pavilion


UN Pavilion

THEME: One Earth, One UN

PAVILION: The Pavilion features a simple but attention-getting appearance with blue as its main color. The eye-catching name and emblem of the United Nations can be seen from a far distance.

EXHIBIT: As the largest, most important representational and authoritative organization worldwide, the United Nations together with its 22 member organizations will present the progress and efforts made in fields of sustainable development, climate change, urban management and other challenges facing our species on a global level. The exhibition is divided into three main areas and was designed to be a spectacle of LCD monitors and multi-media technological exhibits. The main theater for the exhibition contains 192 chairs, symbolic of the 192 member states and reminiscent of the General Assembly Hall at the U.N. Headquarters in New York City. One of the more spectacular elements of the exhibit is entitled “6 Billion Others” and will feature hundreds of television screens showing clips from a film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, showing how more than 600 people and communities in 17 countries are confronting the current climate challenge. There is also a section containing exhibits that will change regularly, created by various UN organizations such as UNESCO and UNICEF, which highlight the issues these organizations are working on at present.

  1. I have heard that Aquagold spring water is available in the Devnet section of the UN Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo.
    Can you confirm this?

    Many thanks,
    Lewis

    • I can – kind of. Devnet actually has its own Pavilion and is not a part of the United Nations Pavilion, and my understanding is that they have Aquagold spring water there for sale, although I didn’t see any while I was there but I have heard it from other sources. Hope that helps.
