Following stops in Brazil and Senegal, the BNP Paribas Foundation sponsored climate exhibition is continuing on its world tour.
The “Climate, The 360° exhibition”, open until 21 March 2016 at the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie in Paris, discusses issues related to climate change through a combined educative and entertaining approach.
And the first thing to know about the climate is that all changes in the climate will have an impact on the planet. So, this exhibition is accompanied by an itinerant exhibition, deployed in several countries. Thus, the exhibition has been set up in Brazil, Senegal, Czech Republic and more recently, in Hong-Kong.
In parallel, a conference of Dr Jérôme Chappellaz, scientist specializing in climate and joint-director of the documentary La Glace et le Ciel, was held in Hong-Kong. Dr Chappellaz is also the initiator of the project Subglacior, sponsored by the BNP Paribas Foundation within the framework of the Climate Initiative program. The conference was held at the head office of BNP Paribas Hong-Kong and offered its 40 participants an in-depth insight into matters related to climate change.
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.
