About the Event
A brand new interactive exhibition touching on the fast-evolving digital revolution as well as the pressing challenges faced by our generation. With both Europe and the world undergoing a major technological transformation, a new phenomena such as artificial intelligence are slowly making their way into all aspects of our lives, from communication to health, from culture to sustainability. What are the innovations and scientific discoveries shaping our future?
The Innovations for a Sustainable Future exhibition seeks to create a dialogue between science, society, culture and art. Its main aim is to address current global issues and the inevitable role science and new technologies will play in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set up by the United Nations in 2015 as a blueprint for a better, more sustainable future for all. The 17 SDGs were adopted by all UN member states agreeing to work on, among other things, a plan to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, achieve gender equality and avert climate threats by 2030.
This interactive augmented reality exhibition was artistically rendered by the renowned Czech graphic designer Pavel Fuksa, drawing from the concept of the successful Czech Innovation Expo which travelled the world presenting Czech scientific discoveries and innovations. The new London exhibition highlights innovations and issues on a European level, reflecting the higher purpose of science with special emphasis on the means needed to implement the ambitious SGDs.
How the Exhibition Works Visitors will see seemingly static outdoor panels with abstract symbols on the walls. After downloading the exhibition app (available free for Android and iOS), they will see the space around them come to life on their devices, allowing them to explore in a fun and unique way a variety of scientific stories and fascinating information about technological innovations contributing to our sustainable future.
