Here you’ll find over 290 shots taken by the great masters of National Geographic photography that tell the deep transformation of the Earth caused by global warming: from the melting of perennial glaciers to extreme weather phenomena.
These dramatic changes affect all regions of the planet and are likely to intensify in the coming decades, unless effective action is taken.
Understanding climate change – Experience exhibition is an immersive exhibition that captivates visitors with visual storytelling and sensory experiences, allowing them to discover the mechanisms and effects of the transformation of the Planet Earth due to global warming.
Digital installations, olfactory stimuli and interactive stations alternate in the exhibition itinerary, which covers an area of 400 square metres and is divided into distinct moments: experience, awareness and call for action.

The will of the National Geographic Society is to broaden the frontiers of exploration, so as to increase knowledge of the planet and give everyone the opportunity to find solutions to build a healthier and more sustainable future.
Human existence depends on the health, balance and sustainability of the Earth, but at the same time it puts the Earth, and everything that lives on it, under dangerous pressure.
We have reached a global turning point, and this determines the need and urgency to act immediately and decisively. The role of society is to seek the truth and to bring it to the fore. The National Geographic Society promotes awareness globally, and proposes solutions for improvement.
