Climate Planet to install giant Globe at Central Station

Last updated by

From October 6th to November 3rd, Utrecht Jaarbeursplein will become home to the international Climate Planet exhibition. A 20-meter-high globe will host a venue for up to 300 people featuring a 360-degree film which will take visitors through space from the Big Bang to the distant future in just 35 minutes.

there will also be live streamed images of the Earth from four NASA satellites.

Climate Planet, a non-profit organisation based in Denmark, has already held similar exhibitions in Copenhagen and Bonn and plans to visit a number of other European cities in the next three years. Their goal is to create awareness and debate over climate change, which they hope will lead to networking and collaboration on the future solutions to the problem.

The event is brought to the city by Utrecht4GlobalGoals, an organisation for sustainable development, in collaboration with several business enterprises and government bodies.

For the whole month of October, the location will be open for sustainable company meetings, special school programmes, and all Utrecht residents who want to enjoy this unique spectacle.
