Via my admirable colleague Li-Kim Lee, I learn of a new and possibly very useful exhibition at London’s Science Museum, from 5 April to 2 November 2008. "This hands-on exhibition explores how the way we live will change over the next few decades in response to climate change. As visitors journey through The Science of Survival, they will be led by four characters who invite visitors to help them solve problems in a city in the year 2050. In five interactive areas – Drinking, Eating, Enjoying, Moving and Building – the exhibition looks at why the future will be different and what we can do about it today. Visitors explore current global issues and some possible technological responses. At the end of the experience visitors will see how well they survived and discover the choices made by other people."
Please see Li-Kim’s Nature Network events listing for a map and more details. I like the various categories, particularly that we will still be able to enjoy life during any upcoming upheavals in global climate. I hope that means I get to keep my books.
