OTTAWA, March 1st, 2018 – Ingenium - Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation - officially launched its second travelling photo exhibition on climate change entitled: "To what degree? Canada in a changing climate". The exhibition, composed of 18 photo panels and a centre pillar, is located at the MacOdrum Library at Carleton and will remain for six weeks before travelling to other regions of Canada.
The exhibition is created in partnership with Environment and Climate Change Canada, Natural Resources Canada, Health Canada, Transport Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Indigenous Services Canada, Public Health Agency of Canada, and in collaboration with Canadian Geographic.
To What Degree? Canada in a changing climate offers stories of people and ecosystems throughout Canada adapting in unique ways to our changing climate. Using compelling photography and minimal text, these stories explore individual and community resilience in the face of extreme events like heat, storms and wildfires, changes in livelihood due to habitat shifts, and even opportunities for quality of life improvements.
"Individuals, governments and industry in Canada are being impacted today by climate change. People and environments here are adapting to a changing climate in all kinds of ways, and it is important to find ways to share these stories with everyone. Exploring the issue creatively in this exhibit gives us an opportunity to connect people to climate change realities.”
- Fernand Proulx, Interim President and CEO of Ingenium
