Oslo Climate House - Staging climate in a museum? Environmental Lunchtime Discussion

The Climate House is a brand new initiative at the Natural History Museum in Oslo. We invite project leader Torkjell Leira to talk about the challenges and possibilities of staging climate in a museum.

The Climate House at the Natural History Museum will be an arena for communicating research on climate and the environment, primarily targeted to a young audience. Through the active dissemination of knowledge, sensory experiences and exploration of the solutions to current climate issues, the Climate House is to inspire visitors and the general public to change towards a sustainable way of life.

Torkjell Leira is project leader for the Climate House project at the Natural History Museum in Oslo. He is a trained geographer and has previously worked on climate change in the Amazon basin.
