Located in the sustainability district, the Dutch pavilion has its own climate system and produces its own water from the desert using solar energy. In addition, it features a 17-metre high cone that is a vertical farm, providing a variety of products, including mushrooms. Mushrooms are part of the Dutch food and drink supply and can also be used as building materials for floor and wall tiles.
This unique pavilion showcases innovative technologies and solutions to these global problems, and aims to leave no carbon footprint behind, using local materials and reducing the need for transport. After Expo 2020, the pavilion's building materials will be reused or recycled locally.
The Dutch Pavilion also organised events related to its youth and economic programmes, with guest speakers and members of the Dutch business community and young entrepreneurs.
