Who said taking green action cannot be fun? Thanks to a partnership between UN Environment and Energy Floors, visitors of the UN pavilion at EXPO 2017 could test this for themselves, on our Sustainable Dance Floor with photo app.
UN pavilion at EXPO 2017
The theme to the 2017 edition of EXPO in Astana, Kazakhstan is Future Energy. On August 24, UN Environment Day, we showcased our technology in the UN pavilion at EXPO 2017. The Sustainable Dance Floor converted visitor’s kinetic energy into electricity. This powered a camera taking the dancers’ photo, allowing users to see the results of their green actions before their eyes.
Learn about renewable energy
The dance floor was meant to attract children and others to learn more about renewable energy and feel part of the solution to ensure access to sustainable energy for all. Other than our floor, UN Environment
also partnered with the Solar Impulse pioneer professor Bertrand Piccard and the government of Switzerland to showcase options and solutions for a clean energy future. Obviously Mr Piccard and the high ranked government officials joined visitors on the dance floor.
After this a high-level dialogue event explored the health, environment and economic benefits of clean energy and ways of speeding up the transition on the ground.
