Community ThrivabilityImaginify the Bioneers and Planetwork conferences converging together in a symphony of ecological and technological imperatives. That's the way the 2005 World Exposition in Aichi, Japan (March 25 through September 25, 2005) is poised to go...From the website, "The site is being constructed with minimum possible impact on the environment in order to fully symbolize and express the Expo's theme 'Nature’s Wisdom.' One pavilion, Growing Village doesn't build houses they grow them...."
Their chairs are not glued but they are grafted. Stools grow in the garden and Fences get bigger every year. Tables need water, beds sprout leaves, mirrors live in tree frames, roots take showers and toilets grow flowers

The Growing Village Pavillion believes that nature's Wisdom is Growing. Growing a Greener Earth, Growing World Peace, Growing Better Relationships and a Deep understanding for People, Cultures and our Planet.

Land development has been carried out to harmonize with the sizable undulations in terrain found there."

EXPO 2005 AICHI, JAPAN
Nagoya Eastern Hills (Nagakute Town, Toyota City and Seto City)

From the website;
"Under the theme "Nature's Wisdom," the 2005 World Exposition, Aichi, Japan will bring together the world - many countries, regions, and international organizations. With the aim of forming a new global society that allows a multitude of cultures and civilizations to coexist together, EXPO 2005 will propose new directions for solving global scale problems confronting the humanity in the 21st century and explore new approaches toward a harmonious coexistence with nature.

Main Theme
• Nature's Wisdom

Nature is a vast font of wisdom, and nature's wisdom stretches from the simplest cell to the infinite reaches of space. This is the wisdom that has given rise to life and eventually ourselves on this planet. Indeed, the history of humankind has been one of learning from nature's wisdom. Humanity cannot live in isolation, and it is imperative that our lives be compatible with the rest of the global ecosystem.

Rediscovering nature's wisdom, we must alter the relationship between humanity and technology as well as the social relations among people themselves. To fail in this can only further exacerbate the degradation of the global ecosystem and imperil our own and our planet's future. Thus it is that Japan wants to host this grand experiment in eco-compatible living and offers this modest site as a global laboratory.

Sub-Themes
• Nature's Matrix

New ways for resolving population and environmental problems are sought through cutting-edge experiments using bio and information technologies.

• Art of Life
Through fine arts, performing arts and daily customs from around the world, various exchanges between people and nature are developed and ways to let the richness of nature and the force of life shine much are to be proposed.

• Development for Eco-Communities
To demonstrate a model recycling society in the 21st century, new energy and new recycling technology are utilized. Ideal lifestyles and urban infrastructures are sought in which resources are used efficiently. The ideal balance between social development and environment is pursued and the restoration of environments is attempted.

EXPO 2005 will be held in Seto City, Nagakute Town and Toyota City in Aichi Prefecture in an area covering approximately 173 hectares. Transcending national boundaries, they will unite to give collective expression to the themes of EXPO 2005 and combine to present a grand intercultural symphony among the world’s peoples and cultures.

The inspiration for EXPO 2005 is the marvelous mechanism of nature and the power of life. Learning from the world's vast collection of wisdom and methods of interaction with nature found around the globe, we hope to bring the world together for the creation of a global society allowing the multitude of cultures and civilizations to coexist together.
