Ljubljana will again hold a series of events at Slovenian pavilion at the world exhibition EXPO 2015 in Milan. The events, taking place this week, from Thursday 8 to Saturday 10 October, will be highlighting our city's green and sustainable character and its high-quality cuisine.

At the world exhibition EXPO 2015 Slovenia is presenting itself under the slogan "Green. Active. Healthy". The region of Central Slovenia with the nation's capital Ljubljana, also named as European Green Capital 2016, is located in its very heart. Its local lifestyle embodies the message of the slogan completely as it's traditionally in harmony with nature and is lately also strongly oriented towards sustainability and protection of the environment.

An exhibition of Ljubljana photos will be set up in front of the Slovenian pavilion. Daily sweepstakes with some practical Ljubljana-themed prizes will be held inside it as visitors will be provided with information about the tourist offer of Ljubljana and the Central Slovenia region. They will also be able to take their photo with the little green dragon, our city's mascot.

The programme will be at its liveliest on Saturday, featuring cooking and tasting sessions with traditional dishes of Taste Ljubljana project, prepared by the staff of Druga violina restaurant. Ljubljana's Druga violina is a successful example of a socially responsible business, employing people with intellectual disabilities. Culinary sessions will be accompanied by a musical programme featuring evergreens from Ljubljana and performed by the group Darling. The day will be rounded off with an evening electronic dance music party with DJ JAMirko and MC Murat.
