UNESCO Organizes Exhibition on Sustainable Development and Climate Change

  • Rating12345

An exhibition entitled “Planet Earth: From Space to Place”, organized by the Science Sector, has been inaugurated by Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden and Goodwill Ambassador, Claudia Cardinale . The purpose of the exhibition, that comes ahead of the proclaimed International Year of Planet Earth in 2008, is to showcase the planet’s diversity, as seen from space, through satellite images. It also displays that, through its programmes, UNESCO’s action is primordial in ensuring the sustainable management of the earth to the benefit of present and future communities by contributing to capacity-building designed to meet the challenges of sustainable development.

Visitors will be able to watch films shown on five linked plasma screens which turn on an axis to reflect the movement of the Earth; they will also be able to observe plants from different regions of the Earth, displayed in three ‘glasshouses’, and see how UNESCO uses space technology to assist Member States in managing their resources.

The exhibition runs until 3 November, in parallel to the General Conference bringing together all 193 Member States of UNESCO.
