Climate Change exhibition launches at recreation centres
January 29, 2018

The City of Edmonton is excited to announce a new exhibition on loan from the Canada Science and Technology Museum in partnership with Environment and Climate Change Canada, Natural Resources Canada, and Sustainable Development Technology Canada: Climate Change is Here.

This photographic display features stunning imagery of climate change as told through photographs from National Geographic Society’s reportage of the topic throughout the years. Through the Museum’s partnerships with various government organizations, the exhibit highlights Canadian research in the field of climate change and technologies developed to help mitigate it.

“We’re excited to bring this display to Edmonton,” says Paul Ross, Manager, Economic and Environmental Sustainability with the City. “It’s a great opportunity for Edmontonians to see these amazing photographs and to think about what impact climate change will have on Edmonton. We should also think about how we can each commit to reducing our environmental impact in our day-to-day lives.”

The display will be at the Meadows Community Recreation Centre from January 25 to March 17. It will then move to the Clareview Community Recreation Centre until May 19. It is being brought to Edmonton as a community activity leading up to the Cities and Climate Change Science Conference being hosted by the City of Edmonton from March 5 - 7, 2018.

The City of Edmonton and Ingenium are proud to partner with National Geographic Society and government agencies tackling climate change to bring the dramatic images of the Climate Change is Here exhibition to visitors. This travelling exhibition, part of the Museum’s Let’s Talk Energy multi-year initiative, is another example of how we fulfill our national role as Canada’s leading science culture communicators.
