New exhibition showcases climate-related projects

12 October 2021

Held at the Herschel Building, the Climate-Emergency-Change exhibition features snapshots of 12 research projects across the University

The Bitter-Sweet Tides project is part of the Living Deltas Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) contributed to by Dr Maggie Roe, Dr Niki Black and Dr Cat Button. They are working with a documentary photographer, Swastik Pal, in the Indian Sundarban landscape where traditional communities care for bees in an area which is incredibly vulnerable to flooding and climate change.

Masterplanning the post-pandemic city

A Master in Landscape Architecture project "Masterplanning the post-pandemic city" is also featured in the exhibition, led by Dr Usue Ruiz Arana, Dr Ian Thompson, Sally Watson and Geoff Whitten.

Reusable, locally made oak exhibition system

The exhibition is curated by Matthew Jarratt, visiting Professor of Practice, whose career has spanned 30 years working with the public and private sectors, and helping to curate arts and culture projects.

Matthew has developed a reusable, locally made oak exhibition system including video screens and light boxes to showcase the projects. During COP26 in November, the exhibition will include an interactive element where student comments and statements about the issues being debated at the summit in Glasgow are gathered through social media and added to the exhibition.

The exhibition will be open until the end of November 2021, do pop along to visit if you are able!
