Evidence of climate change is all around us: rising temperatures, shrinking glaciers, and more extreme weather tell the story of a planet in transition. Where on the Earth’s surface can we observe these changes? How are humans creating, experiencing, and adapting to these effects? What useful strategies do we have in our tool kit to help us move towards a resilient future? Join Museum experts for an upbeat virtual expedition across our changing world, guided by your questions and reflections.
