Project DescriptionFROM MILAN EXPO 2015:
Theme "Naturally Sustainable"
In line with the theme of Expo 2015, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, Colombia aims to demonstrate that it is possible to assure sustainable food that is nourishing and sufficient for all.
Due to its geographical position and vast range of natural resources, Colombia is proof that it is possible to achieve a balance between mankind and nature.
Colombia, unlike most countries, is not subject to the changing seasons, given its proximity to the equator. Changes in climate have only one variable: altitude. Within the Colombian territory you can go from 0 to over 5000 meters above sea level and cross all five "thermal floors" of the world (pisos termicos de Colombia).
Colombia brings together all the climates of the world, with different species of animals and plants on each thermal floor. For this reason, there exist all kinds of crops in Colombia that grow throughout the year. As a source of food, water and oxygen, they offer a clear example of how hunger in the world can be overcome naturally, fighting the three major global threats of hunger, poverty and climate change.
