At the twelve conferences with up to 400 participants, over 50 nations have come together in the new Congress Center of the EXPO. Internationally connected institutions like the European Union, Nazarbayev University, OECD, UNESCO, UNIDO as well as UNITAR have been represented. 500 speakers from the scientific, political and economic sectors have taken part in keynotes, panels, and workshops – amongst them were the solar flight pioneer Prof Dr Bertrand Piccard, the astrophysicist and Nobel Laureate Prof George Smoot, as well as global strategist Dr Parag Khanna.

The most important findings are recorded in the Astana EXPO-2017 Manifesto of Values and Principles, presided over by the renowned Steering Committee, as a foundation for the continuing discourse.

Prof Lutz Engelke, Founder and CEO TRIAD Berlin:
"Each World Expo has brought surprises. In Kazakhstan, in just 10 weeks, a kind of 'Energy Davos' has come into being. Together with our partners, we have succeeded in bringing together leading international experts for a pioneering discussion about the future of energy. The Manifesto summarises their knowledge as a foundation for the continuing discourse with regards to the coming Expo 2020 in Dubai, beyond which it must continue to take place."
