The exhibition was first hosted by the Science Museum in London and received over 1.5 million visitors worldwide. It explores how our lives could be affected by the changes in our planet and the role of science and technology in humanity’s efforts to adapt.
As part of the exhibition, a journey takes place into the future, in the city of 2050. Four virtual guides (Εco, Buz, Tek, Dug) advise the visitors on different ways to tackle the challenges ahead and live in a sustainable way.
Visitors follow a tour in seven areas: Briefing, Drinking, Eating, Travel, Buildings, Recreation and Future City. These areas consist of artefacts, interactive games and activities as well as informative audiovisual material. The exhibition invites people to explore new ways to find water and create super-food, to design and drive their own vehicle as well as build their own sustainable community for 2050. It also reveals how our lives and leisure activities will affect the global environment. Finally, new inventions are shown, suggesting different ways of using the planet’s resources.
The exhibition is designed for families with children aged 5+ as well as school groups (Kindergarten, Primary and High School).
