Climate Exchange at Manchester Museum – call for volunteers

(15 April 2016)

Be part of the Climate Exchange public programme

We are looking for academics, students, designers, architects, growers, campaigners, sustainability enthusiasts and thinkers who would like to take part in Climate Exchange.   We’re looking at Climate Change in the broadest possible sense - from historical change, weather, impact around the future, future buildings, transport – anything linked with the local and global issues of our future world.

Climate Exchange is a key part of the Climate Control public programme offering a daily opportunity for visitors to the Museum to have structured conversations about Climate Change.  Climate Exchange will take place in a dedicated space, within either the Climate Control exhibition or in the Living Worlds Gallery.
