With the theme "Pulsing Cities: Feel the Life of Brazilian Cities", the pavilion will show off the cultural diversity of Brazilian cities, their dynamism and the vigorously growing local economy. In addition, it will highlight the various achievements made by Brazilian people in sustainable development, for instance, the advanced exploration of renewable sources of energy, and the establishment of new-type city of inclusivity. And of course, football culture will be another highlight in the exhibition.
