The interactive displays in the galleries are designed for fun while encouraging some thoughts on how we can get enough food, energy and a place to live, without destroying the planet for future generations (known as Sustainable Development).
In Gallery 1, spin boards and push buttons to calculate your environmental footprint, and see if your lifestyle makes too many demands on the planet. Puff and pump up the renewable energies to reduce carbon emissions.
Investigate the importance of preserving as wide a range of wildlife as possible in Gallery 2 by using your skills to find out which animals live in different habitats, and see what things you could do to help wildlife where you live.
Also on display is some of the latest green technology that reduces the effect of global warming by using renewable resources. See how we save money, and help save the planet by heating the building with wood pellets.
