Description

This exhibition has been developed to help promote high-quality educational experiences linked to nature and climate change. The exhibition is suitable for a wide range of formal, informal and non-formal education settings for all ages.

The exhibition consists of specially commissioned illustrations, created by design studio Hartland Design, showing how nature, primarily animals, is affected by climate change. The exhibition’s focus is on helping people understand (1) the impacts of climate change at population, species and community levels, (2) how

climate change can be managed through supporting nature (nature-based solutions/ecosystem services), and (3) how nature will need to be conserved while addressing climate change at the same time.

The exhibition draws on recent scientific research on the many ways in which climate change is already affecting biodiversity around the world. The exhibition also draws on applied social sciences research on promoting effective climate change communication and engagement. The exhibition includes 19 illustrations, and will grow to include more, with 50-80 word captions, and an introductory panel. The exhibition can be hired in its entirety, or smaller numbers of illustrations can be hired at a reduced cost.

The exhibition is offered at a comparatively low cost to promote uptake and support climate empowerment everywhere.

Highlights Details
This exhibition aims for excellence in terms of its content and interpretive method, by drawing on recent research on the impacts of climate change on nature, and communication methods that promote effective climate change engagement, and by connecting people with high-level agendas including the Paris Agreement, Sustainable Development Goals and Convention on Biological Diversity in ways that are interesting and based on cultural experiences. It also aims for excellence by avoiding one of the main challenges of touring exhibitions, namely greenhouse gas emissions associated with transporting exhibitions. You produce the exhibition locally, giving you an opportunity to 'walk the walk', and explain to audiences how you are working to reduce your climate impacts through exhibitions.
