His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, accompanied a group of school students during his visit to Expo 2020 Dubai, specifically on a visit to the Sustainability Pavilion.
Sheikh Mohamed explained to them what the pavilion contained, and about the exhibition Expo 2020 Dubai in general.
This initiative comes from Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed on the occasion of the International Volunteer Day, which falls on December 5.
Expo 2020 Volunteers said on Twitter, “On International Volunteers Day, we were honoured to have amongst us a special Volunteer. Thank you for supporting the Volunteerism spirit.”
The Expo 2020 Twitter was referring to Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed.
It is mentioned that International Volunteer Day is an annual occasion in which individual volunteers, communities and organisations are given an opportunity to enhance their contribution to development at the local, national and international levels.
The United Nations General Assembly adopted International Volunteer Day on December 5, and world governments and civil society organisations began celebrating this day for economic and social development and urged measures to raise awareness of the importance of the contribution of volunteer service.
The aim is to motivate people in all walks of life to provide their services as volunteers, both at home and abroad.
“We will celebrate the accomplishments of the last 50 years. Thanks to the efforts of UAE citizens and residents, as well as all those who have contributed to its success and prosperity, Expo 2020 will mark the start of new 50-year phase of leadership and achievements.”
The UAE Government’s new foreign direct investment, FDI, law passed in 2018 could accelerate FDI flows by up to 20 per cent this year, from the eight per cent average growth rate, as per the recent estimates of the Ministry of Economy.

The Sustainability Pavilion is one of Expo 2020’s signature visitor attractions. The pavilion’s emotive exploratory experience includes an interactive walk through the roots of the forest and a journey under the ocean.
