EXPO 2017 - Astana Kazakhstan


EXPO 2017 - Astana Kazakhstan Future Energy

Kazakhstan proposed “Future Energy” as the theme of Expo 2017. Nowadays, the world is facing a shortage of energy with a threat of environmental crisis, which raises a real challenge in conserving traditional energies and finding alternative energies. As oil production is declining and its value increases gradually, in the near future, a large amount of population will have to shift to alternative energy. The Expo will serve as a platform for exchanging experiences all over the world in the field of alternative energy, a sector that is growing rapidly these years.(text taken from Expo 2017 website.)
