“It is our way of connecting with people across the UAE,” noted text on the video. “Stay tuned to find out where the van will be next.”
In late October, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and director-general of the Expo 2020 Dubai Office said that Expo 2020 is an unprecedented opportunity for young people “to interact with the world”.
“It is a day that will affect our entire region and its children, youth and elderly, as well as its governments and peoples,” she said. “We have never had this opportunity to showcase our achievements, cultures, heritage and aspirations and dreams to the entire world on a global platform.”
