The Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change (MoCC) exposes the works of the explorer Dr. Rebecca Lee at CUHK [fr]
As part of the Gaia program of the CUHK Jockey Club, the works of the explorer Dr. Rebecca Lee will be exposed in a permanent exhibition at the MoCC
« Nnine of the 10 warmest years in the modern meteorological record have occurred since the year 2000. » - ScienceDaily.com, 19 January 2012
From this shoking finding, the Gaia program has been established. Financially supported by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, this program aims at helping us measure the environmental impact we may have and invites us to implement sustainable initiatives.
A unique museum has been created. One of its galleries, the “polar gallery”, presents the works of the explorer Dr. Rebecca Lee, first woman to be gone to the different poles. These works let us appreciate a personal and striking vision of the evolution of the “Three poles” – the North Pole, the South Pole and the Mount Everest – due to the global warming.
In an almost fantasy world, the Arctic king seems then master of a kingdom in ruin. The cry of nature is palpable, the beauty of the landscapes breathtaking.
For nature lovers to whom the exhibition would not be enough, take a look at all the activities also offered. Whether to learn to make your own repellent against mosquitoes or to paint on tree leaves, everyday gestures to go green are sometimes surprising and unexpected, but always effective and fun.
Therefore, for its innovative and educational aspect, or just to admire its beauty, we would easily let us be tempted by this invitation to travel, especially as the exhibition is free. Note to teachers and students: guided tours can be organized for groups of 30 people on Saturday mornings. A very nice initiative that we strongly encourage!
