Angola Pavilion at Expo’15
At its exhibition space, Angola seeks to showcase Angolan food and fare that can be used to create better and healthier lifestyles for future generations. Angola has chosen to elaborate the theme of Expo Milano 2015, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life: focusing on the culture and soul of the African nation through its varied and traditional cuisine, with its theme of: Educate to Innovate.
The concept of education is interpreted here as awareness of nutrition in Angolan society from schools to universities, the re-definition of norms and regulations of local production and imports, and the introduction of quality checks in local markets. The concept of innovation has two aspects: one, based on the constant encouragement of traditional local practices that are both healthy and sustainable. The other, to integrate the best technologies that science can offer for a robust sustainable development. The role of women is central to Angolan society – from food preparation to domestic economy, from family hygiene to education; they are at the heart of its traditions.
