Carbon Conflict & Climate Change Exhibition
Explore geoscience, art, and climate change like never before! The British Geological Survey share their work and research in this fascinating exhibition which will follow a journey of geoscience themes narrating different elements of climate change and how this affects our urban and natural environment.
We will explore the natural carbon cycle as well as technology-led adaptions including renewable energy, net zero carbon cities and carbon storage.
Science and art will combine in this exhibition with an installation from artist and hydrologist, Nicole Manley, which interconnects elements of human activity and experiences relating to climate change through collage, sound, light installtion, clay sculpture and participatory art activies.
Part of the Midlothian Climate Beacon, a collaboration between the National Mining Museum Scotland and the British Geological Survey! The Midlothian Climate Beacon will create a transformative journey through the carbon cycle, from Scotland’s past legacy of fossil fuels towards a future of decarbonisation, connecting local and international cultures through art and science.
