Ottawa, ON, May 4, 2023 — How do our decisions in the grocery aisle impact the environment? How do energy savings stack up when choosing public transit and active transportation? Designed as a series of interactive games and quizzes, Our Climate Quest: Small Steps to Big Change explores the answers to these questions and more as visitors discover the big impacts of our everyday choices. The Our Climate Quest exhibition is open now at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa.
Curated and developed by Science North with support from the Government of Canada, Our Climate Quest builds on our current understanding of climate change and its impacts, engaging Canadians on climate action, inspiring visitors to learn more about their roles as change makers, and fostering a problem-solving space that empowers visitors to take meaningful action. With messages of hope that inspire climate solutions, the exhibition avoids a fear-based approach to urging climate action and a more sustainable future.
Included in the price of admission, come discover Our Climate Quest now through September 4, 2023 at the Canada Science and Technology Museum. To learn more and book tickets, visit ingeniumcanada.org.
“Climate change is a defining challenge of our time.

We hope it provides an opportunity for our visitors to reflect and explore avenues for change during their museum visit.”
- Lisa Leblanc, Director General, Canada Science and Technology Museum
“Developing and touring the Our Climate Quest exhibitions has been a tremendous privilege for Science North as it has allowed us to build upon our commitments to climate action and further strengthen our partnerships across the tourism sector and with the Government of Canada. We are grateful to Environment and Climate Change Canada for funding this transformational initiative, which will reach millions of youth across our country.”
