‘Climat, l’expo 360°’ (Climate, a Panoramic Exhibition) will continue on display until 21 March at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie science museum in Parc de la Villette in Paris, where numerous visitors have been flocking to the 600m² space dedicated to scientific research and expert opinions on climate change issues. However, you can also view the exhibition in other countries as well.
Thanks to partnerships between the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, the Instituts Français and Alliances Françaises networks, which operate under the aegis of France’s Foreign Ministry, and BNP Paribas, the exhibition is being showcased all over the world.
Following showings in Brazil in September and Senegal in November, you can find the exhibition in:
- Algiers: at the Institut Français until 31 March 2016
- Prague: at the Institut Français until 15 December 2015
- Hong Kong: at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) from 7 December 2015 to 8 January 2016
And coming soon to Morocco, Poland, the USA and more countries…
Is global warming a new phenomenon in the history of our planet? What are the factors which influence the climate? What predictions are researchers now making for the future? And what can be done to combat climate change, by either limiting its impact or adapting to it? Come along and find out what the climatologists who are probing into the memory banks preserved in our environment – ice cores, tree rings and coral reefs – have to say on the subject.
Since 2010, the BNP Paribas Foundation has been running the Climate Initiative, a support programme for scientific research designed to improve our understanding of climate mechanisms and help assess the consequences for our environment of climate disruptions. By supporting the Universcience** exhibition, the Foundation is taking this long-standing commitment a step further, with a view to raising public awareness of climate change and the various related issues.
** Universcience is the joint name for two leading Paris science museums – the ‘Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie’ in Parc de la Villette and the ‘Palais de la Découverte’ on Avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt.
