Plants such as olives, wheat, almonds, pears, plums and cherries that spread out from this geography and spread to the world under the theme of "The History of Ornamental and Agricultural Plants" will be examined at Izmir EXPO 2026. On the other hand, it is aimed to invest in the reproduction of the plant species living in these lands until EXPO 2026 and to introduce new ornamental plants to the world.

The theme of "Seed Resilience" will be dedicated to the Urla philosopher Anaxagoras, who first described the seed as an essence. Under this theme, innovative projects on how seeds from the past, defined as "ancestry", should be protected in the global system will be included. The seeds will be displayed in a display area that will be made in the form of Noah's Ark.

Areas showing the relationship of flavors with plant geographies

The third theme considered for EXPO 2026 is "Climate Resilience." Under this theme, climate-friendly, horizontal and vertical landscaping examples of the future of plants and landscaping will be discussed and exhibited at the EXPO. It is planned to present application examples of basic approaches such as sustainable gardens, specific design techniques and food gardens under the title of "The Future of Landscape Design".

In the exhibition sections of EXPO 2026, there will also be areas showing the different tastes of İzmir and the gastronomic richness of Anatolia and the relationship of these flavors with plant geographies. In addition, gastronomic riches from all over the world will be displayed in the gardens of the participating countries.
