Free exhibition on climate change open to visitors till March 2024 at Singapore Botanic Gardens
The exhibition, named ‘Melting Ice, Sinking Cities’ will have five zones exploring Singapore’s coastal resilience.
A new exhibition exploring climate change and Singapore’s coastal resilience is now open to visitors at the CDL Green Gallery in Botanic Gardens from now until March 2024.
The exhibition, titled Melting Ice, Sinking Cities: An Urgency to Change the Present and Save Humanity, is organised by City Developers Limited (CDL), the National Parks Board (NParks) and Ocean Geographic (OG).
It is categorised into five different zones – A Global Climate Emergency: Spotlighting the Antarctic, An Urgent Call for Collective Action: A Blue and Green Planet, Local Action: Marine Conservation in Singapore, CDL’s Climate Action: Advancing A Low-Carbon and Resilient Built Environment and The Remains of the Antarctic 2023: Splendour and Hope.
The first part of the exhibition explores perspectives and aspirations that 120 Antarctic Climate Expedition (ACE) 2023 members have. It is aimed at raising awareness for ocean-focused climate solutions.
Illustrations of the key learning highlights from ACE 2023 between the blue and green economies are then covered in the second section. Subsequently, the third zone discusses the methods that each state actor, public and private player can do, including NParks’ commitment to marine conservation and efforts to enhance coastal resilience.
Visitors can also expect to see CDL’s sustainability efforts and track record in the race towards Net Zero Carbon, as well as photos and videos from ACE 2023 members and OG, highlighting threats to the ocean and marine life in the final two zones of the showcase.
Ms Indranee Rajah, Minister in Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for Finance and Second Minister for National Development, launched the exhibition together with world-renowned marine biologist and oceanographer Dr Sylvia Earle on Jun 23.
The energy used to run the exhibition and its multimedia fixtures is offset by on-site solar generation and off-site renewable energy, in line with the theme of climate action.
Admission to the exhibition is free. A virtual exhibition is also available for overseas visitors via the CDL Sustainability website.
