Civil Society Organizations

The Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) play a leading role at Expo Milano 2015. Which is not surprising. For, it would be impossible to cover a theme so central to the future of mankind as Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life without the participation and contribution of that “aggregate of non-governmental organizations and institutions that manifest the interests and will of citizens."
 
Civil Society has a dedicated pavilion, Cascina Triulza, within the exhibition site. This is the venue for events and initiatives related to the Expo’s theme. The Cascina Triulza is managed by the Triulza Foundation, which, in collaboration with Expo 2015 S.p.A., coordinates the activities of the CSOs.

Representatives of Civil Society are also present throughout the Site, organizing events, and promoting cooperation with other Participants.

All the Civil Society Participants are contributing their knowledge and experience to Expo, via activities focused on developing education and awareness of the Universal Exposition’s themes.
 
The presence of Civil Societies at Expo Milano 2015 is, therefore, inclusive, wide-ranging, and rich in content.
