In 1950, the United Nations estimated that 29% of the population lived in cities; by 2010 it will have increased to 51% and by 2050, the urban population will be 70%.
Creating better environments within urban areas has become an important topic of the 21st century and because of this the theme of Expo 2010 Shanghai China is “Better City, Better Life ”. The expo will provide a platform for participating countries and organizations to share their experiences of urban development, and discuss advanced ideas and new approaches towards environmental lifestyles and working conditions as well as putting forward thoughts on sustainable development in the cities.
