And that’s a wrap…UAEU Expo 2020 Boot Camp comes to a close
UAEU hosted a five day boot camp led by a team of experts to co-create and engage
the UAEU community (Faculty, Student, Staff) in the content development and design
of the UAEU pavilion at Expo 2020. The event was hosted in the newly established UAEU
Expo 2020 Hub located in the Science and Innovation Park at UAEU. The first two days
were dedicated to team building and understanding the methodology and brief. Also,
the participants were afforded the opportunity to visit the Expo 2020 site to feel
inspired and to see the location of the pavilion and the three main districts Sustainability,
Mobility and Opportunity. Expo provided workshop to the participants to give a more
accurate picture of the global event, and to help them to understand the message on
which it is based ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future. UAEU feels very honored
as is the only educational institution in the UAE with its own pavilion.
The three remaining days were dedicated to involving the boot camp participants in
5 different workshops to come up with the desired outcomes. These included Mascot
Design, App Design, Merchandize Design, Screenplay & Storyboard Design and Pavilion
Artwork & Design. The participants were highly engaged and actively involved in the
co-creation and ideation. It even led to some of them thinking of themselves as a
pathfinder. The boot camp concluded with the final presentations and an award ceremony
where participants were presented with certificates, Expo passes and recognition in
the UAEU Pavilion at Expo 2020. This was just the beginning of many exciting activities
and activations planned in the lead up to Expo 2020 Dubai to engage and inspire.
