TURKEY AT EXPO 2017 ASTANA
Turkey's EXPO 2017 Astana theme is "'Sustainable Energy Through Global Synergy'". Turkey, a part of this synergy, says "We are here as a center with all our potential, our power and our vision for the sustainability of energy." Acknowledging the responsibility of being a center, Turkey manifests adopting the identities that host, protect, reveal, transform, transmit and share its people-oriented approach with its sub-themes.
Turkey chose sunflower, symbolizing the sun and clean energy in its logo for EXPO 2017 Astana to give the message that "the world is full of peaceful and positive energy and we should be able to smile safely at the future".
Two circles in the logo represent the center. Additionally, this is the sign for the Sun in petroglyphs belonging to Central Asian Turks.
The logo also symbolizes the distribution of humanity and energy from the center to the globe with the leaves in the form of outward arrows.
At Expo 2017 Astana, Turkey focuses on the contribution to world peace with the understanding of equitable sharing of energy.
Energy is life. The existence of life extends back to 12 thousand years ago in our lands. Anatolia has always been a source of cultures and natural riches with its ancient history and geography, and has played a leading role in the transformation of energy. Today, our country is a "natural junction" that contributes to the processing and bringing of the energy shaping the future world.
Turkey deals with energy with the responsibility of its position; it emphasizes the importance of world peace, equitable sharing of energy, supply security, energy saving and clean-renewable energy with the concepts, messages, thematic content and activities.
As well as being the energy base for the world, Turkey is the center of the world energy trade with its coordinated and proactive energy policies and Turkey has prepared the ideal environment and program for the innovative interactions that will arise in the energy of the future and presented its values and experiences to the world with its own vision
Approach: "From Turkey to the Future of the World"
Turkey refers to global scale titles such as energy efficiency and the effects of energy on climate change with specific projects. It promotes clean and renewable energy sources such as wind, sun, water, geothermal and biofuels; also exhibits its underground resources. Having an important place in the world with regard to mine diversity, Turkey works on energy production and the mines used in energy related sectors in order to be able to direct new inventions and innovations.
The themes that shape theTurkish Pavilion:
From the trace of past to the future
• The pavilion of Turkey welcomes its visitors with the entrance gate designed with inspiration from the historical mills of Anatolia and the front wall covered with Anatolian Seljuk motifs.
Energy in nature
• The inviting water sound accompanying this picture welcomes visitors while drawing attention to the generosity of the Anatolian nature
• Participants are now in an energy flow from the very entrance. The projections and giant screens used on the wall get "Turkey's Energy" commune with the decorations of the area and convey them to the visitors. It presents an impressive contrast by combining information and experiences about digitally gained energy with human and natural content.
Under the same sphere
• Each circular transition between the areas is a corridor of energy and all the corridors unite under the sphere (digital sphere) symbolizing life in the center of the pavilion. The sphere gives the message of "Turkey: center of energy for the future of the world"
Turkey: Source of Equitable Sharing for Peace and Future
• Turkey Pavilion’s last part is marked with Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi, the symbolic name of world peace and justice. Equitable share of energy for world peace is handled both through Mevlana's human oriented teachings and through the connection between the whirling dervish ritual and sustainable energy. The dervishes, who perform a fascinating whirling dervish show hanging in the air with hologram technology, bid farewell visitors with Mevlana’s aphorism: 'Come, Whoever You Are Come'
Turkey has brought its big names and cultural values that have affected the world to the pavilion by associating them with the energy theme and put light on the teachings of the future.
From the Silk Road to the energy corridor, from Anatolia's water mills to hydroelectric power plants, from Mevlana burning with the energy of divine love and longing for peace to Turkey embracing the world with humanitarian aids…
Turkey: the center of energy for the future of the world with its vision of embracing the future and "sharing for peace"
