Your Planet Needs You!

Cyprus : Your Planet Needs You!

Your Planet Needs You ... Live in 2050!
How can we deal with challenges we are facing?
How do we want to live in the future?

Our Exhibition ''Your Planet Needs You!'' is an interactive exhibition for the whole family. It will be held at the Cyprus International Fair, EXPO (Kiosk 4, 1.100 sqm) from the 13th of October 2017 till the 1st of December 2017 and was designed by Science Museum of London. It was first presented on London’s Science Museum before it began its world tour in places like New York, Kuala Lumpur, Athens, Thessaloniki. The exhibition focuses in some of the most important contemporary issues, like worldwide reduction of natural resources, climate changes, and the need for citizenship activation for a sustainable future.

While the visitors walk through the exhibition they take part into interactive games that aim to entice them into issues and problems that concern the creation of a sustainable future. Amongst the activity there the ‘Journey to the Future’, a driving game where the visitor design a vehicle and can invite his/her friends to a future city. Another game is the ‘future drink game’ where the participants try to trace drinking water. There is also a virtual swimming pool where one can dive. The visitors are given digital ‘survival card’ where their decisions are inscribed. For example visitors are called to design their future houses and decide what types of energy they would need to use in order to power them.

Participants are welcomed by four characters in the briefing area at start of the exhibition. Buz, Eco, Tek and Dug introduce themselves, they talk to us from the year 2050 and they want us to think more seriously about our future (their present..!).

Visitors will see the 2050 neighborhood they built come to life on the big screen, rising from the ground amongst a future city that demonstrates how everyone’s potential lifestyles combine to affect all our futures.!
