Connecting minds for a sustainable future
In the Netherlands, companies, knowledge institutions and government organisations work together closely to create new technologies and innovations.
Come to our pavilion and learn more about why and how we do this.
The Netherlands unites water, energy and food solutions for a greener planet. Watch this video to discover how we unite water, energy and food in our pavilion.
The earth has a delicate eco-system…
Everything is connected with each other.
Water, energy, food…
They simply can’t exist without each other.
The world’s population keeps on growing.
And we are dealing with global challenges…
like water scarcity, food security and a rising demand for energy.
So becoming self-sustaining is getting more and more important.
Expo 2020 offers an exciting opportunity to drive positive change.
And this is where the Netherlands is keen to contribute.
By uniting water, energy and food…
something magical can happen.
We’ve designed a pavilion which is more a biotope than a building.
A miniature world, where the climate is controlled naturally.
Where water, energy and food are intrinsically linked.
Full of intense sensory experiences.
A pavilion that stands for openness, inventiveness and inclusion…
and for minimising our footprint.
The entire installation will be built from local resources…
and with locally rented construction materials.
After Expo 2020, all materials are given back, or will go to a new destination.
We invite you to experience these new possibilities…
So open your eyes.
And let your senses experience a unique sensation.
Let’s connect minds to create a better, more sustainable future.
Welcome to the Dutch Pavilion.

Dutch Dubai, Dutch Connection in the Gulf.
Uniting water, energy and food.
There’s always something to discover at the Dutch pavilion. We don’t just showcase innovations in water, energy and food –we also connect these sectors to other global topics.
Discover our programme, which covers a range of topics, from water, energy & food to women’s entrepreneurship and education.
Our expo theme is Water, Energy & Food. Water is crucial in this triangle. It is needed to produce Energy and Food and plays an important role in climate change and the cities of tomorrow.
Energy consumption in the Netherlands is mainly from natural gas, imported coal, oil and an increasing amount of renewable energy. We are making the transition to full renewable energy.
Dutch government, cities and businesses embrace the circular economy as one of the solutions to reach their climate and city goals.
Dutch visual & performing arts, buildings & design – all tell the story of our country. A country open to collaboration; one that comes up with innovative solutions.
Gender equality in business unlocks huge economic potential. Women can make a difference by developing smart solutions to global issues in water, energy and food.
The theme of the Dutch pavilion − uniting water, energy and food − contributes to more awareness and international cooperation in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
