The International Horticultural Expo is held once every ten years. As mentioned, 2022’s special seventh edition will focus fully on the Green City of the Future, and the following four themes will play a leading part;
  • Green
    Parks, vertical gardens, and lots of green in the streets: that is how to make cities more striking and adaptable
  • Food
    Showcasing the latest ideas for satisfactory, healthy, and reasonable food. And the ideas that are available for food protection and maintainable food production
  • Energy
    Renewable energy is essential for fast-paced city life. Find the most open-minded answers and creations
  • Health
    Without clean air, clean water, and clean soil, there is no clean living environment. How can food, exercise, flowers, plants, and trees help you and the city?
