for the 21st Century
that technology is nothing more than a tool used by humans
to provide for more convenient and comfortable lifestyles
seems to be the trend leading up to the 21st century. Humans
have taken from the land and have almost always forgotten
to give anything back to nature. This kind of thinking has
led to environmental devastation of ancient landscapes in
a relatively short period of time.
– concerned with the theme "Nature’s Wisdom" – realizes that
new ideas and technologies must be developed in order to end
practices that wreck irreparable damage to the environment.
In keeping with this theme, Expo 2005 suggests that the true
meaning of technology is to draw out the hidden potential
of nature so that it has new purpose. This new purpose must
include environmental, technological and cultural concerns
about local and global development.
