This is an open invitation to explore, learn, and take action.
Our proposal is a model that strategically disassembles and locates the museum along the transit system, starting from the airport and extending along the subway, bus, and train stops through partnership with Glasgow’s public transit agency.
We encourage visitors to take public transit and immerse in the Glasgow Science Centre’s programming related to the COP26 upon immediate arrival. This model can be adapted for future climate exhibits around the world. We adapt the museum’s exhibit into multimedia displays, shown on existing screens and infrastructure to engage the public and co-create new approaches to conservation and management of natural and cultural heritage.
Along the transit network, climate-themed exhibits on the bus, rail, and subway display areas can be explored through a partnership between Glasgow Science Center and the Glasgow public transport system, the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport.
A city-wide scavenger hunt will guide students, Glaswegians, and visitors to uncover climate stories at nearby sites. This integrates science content with the actual Glasgow urban fabric to learn about how climate change affects your own city.
Exhibits are augmented by interactive web and AR applications. Brochures and books can be picked up at one transit station and returned at another station.
