World Teachers’ Day by the UNESCO is celebrated across the globe on Oct.5, Expo 2020, as it has been celebrated every year since 1994.

Expo 2020 Dubai took the opportunity to honor educators by renaming Innovation Gallery within Terra - The Sustainability Pavilion under Muhammed Al Saket Al Falasi, the man who taught His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

A commemorative plaque will be unveiled in the coming weeks with a small ceremony, and the Innovation Gallery will feature a children’s innovations exhibit, providing a playful, exploratory experience.

Terra itself will be transformed into a Science Museum, promoting sustainable choices for all ages following the closing of Expo on March 31, 2022.

Ali Muhammad Al Saket Al Falasi, the son of the pioneering teacher, said "My father has shared many stories about his time teaching His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid, that he was an excellent pupil, and that he saw early on the distinctive qualities that would make him a respected leader, and of great importance in the future."

The Expo School Programme is dedicated to engaging with schools and students of the UAE in the journey to Expo 2020.
