The total number of registrations to take part in Dubai Expo 2020 as a volunteer has reached 50,000.

The figure was achieved as members of the UAE public turned out in force as the Expo 2020 Volunteers team visited Hatta.

The event saw hundreds more people sign up to volunteer for the next World Expo, as the total number of registrations reached 50,000.

The Expo 2020 Volunteers programme is taking its portable recruitment stand across the length and breadth of the UAE, ensuring that people from all areas of the country can become volunteers at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The Hatta volunteers were interviewed and registered according to their areas of interest and specialisation, to make sure they get the most out of their experience with Expo.

Abeer Al Hosani, head of volunteers, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “We had a fantastic time in Hatta. Not only was it an opportunity to have fun in the UAE mountains, but it also allowed us to interview and engage with some of the volunteers who will help us to deliver an exceptional World Expo with a lasting impact.

“The fact that we have already reached 50,000 registrations shows how eager the people of the UAE are to give back to their communities and participate in this global event. As the face of Expo 2020 Dubai, volunteers will play an essential role in welcoming the world to the UAE for our region’s first ever World Expo.”

The Expo 2020 Volunteers programme is open to all UAE nationals and expat residents, including university students, graduates, homemakers, employees, retirees and people of determination.
