To celebrate its third anniversary of operation, the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change has collaborated with Australian science communicator Joe Duggan to organize a themed exhibition titled ‘Is This How You Feel?’. The exhibition is open to the public with free admission from 16 December 2016 to 28 February 2017.
The exhibition showcases hand-written letters from 22 Australian climate scientists, describing their raw, heartfelt feelings about climate change, in order to raise public awareness of climate change and to encourage visitors to reflect on the impact the things they do in their daily life has on the earth. Visitors are encouraged to join in promoting environmental conservation, living an environmentally friendly life, and joining hands to build a sustainable future for Hong Kong.
Officiating at the opening ceremony on 16 December were Prof. Tung Fung, Associate Vice-President of CUHK, Ms Vivian Lee, Senior Charities Manager of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, Mr Edwin Lau, Executive Director of The Green Earth, Prof. Gabriel Lau, AXA Professor of Geography and Resource Management and Director of the Institute of Environment, Energy and Sustainability (IEES) at CUHK, and Prof. Jimmy Yu, Associate Director of IEES.
