Iceland boasts the most active volcanos and geysers in the world, and the largest glacier in Europe. With the meltwater from glaciers running endlessly into rivers and waterfalls, Iceland is blessed for its untouched nature. Such a natural environment has given Iceland rich resources - water power and terrestrial heat. The Iceland Pavilion focuses on the relationship between Icelandic people and nature, introducing how the country has learned to use clean, renewable energy in daily life.
