From June through October, the Climate Museum presents Taking Action, an exhibition inspired by youth leadership on climate, inviting visitors to explore interactive installations to learn about clean energy and other proven mitigation strategies, as well as the main impediments to our transition to a carbon-free economy and culture. The new wave of leadership urges us all to make a fresh start in our approach to the crisis, and at the end of the exhibition, visitors encounter a direct call to action, choosing different steps toward breaking the climate silence and advancing climate progress.

Taking Action invites us all to recognize our collective potential in the fight against climate change and to accept our roles as engaged citizens and active advocates for a better future. It promotes awareness of existing solutions and reminds viewers that our actions aggregate to create progress toward a new, more sustainable, more just future. By starting from the standpoint of youth, the exhibition emphasizes the intergenerational injustice that distorts our current economy and culture, and honors the moral clarity of the young voices opening up the space for a fundamental renewal of our commitment to humanity and civilization.

Taking Action is reserved for group visits and field trips on Thursdays and Fridays (10:45 AM-5 PM). Click here for info on requesting a special tour.
