The exhibits in this section are based on the valuable collection from Dr Rebecca Lee, the renowned environmentalist and explorer, built through her lifelong fieldwork in the "Three Poles" (the North Pole, the South Pole and Mount Everest) and network with research institutes in mainland China. This collection offers a vivid demonstration to visitors on global warming and climate change, as well as the macroscopic impacts.
Remote Sensing and Environmental Monitoring is a collection of interactive multimedia presentation of the many types of environmental and climate information derived from Earth-orbiting satellites and other advanced technology. The visitors will be able to explore by themselves, through the application of geo-information science, how the Earth is changing in time and space and how climate change may impact the environment and their daily lives.
Research and Innovation at CUHK showcases the Chinese University’s innovative research results across a wide spectrum of environmental science and energy technology. Visitors are informed of not only the latest research developments and technological advances, but also the future potentials in these fields to combat climate change.
Environmental efforts require the community’s support. The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust has for years supported a significant number of projects to promote environmental protection in Hong Kong. This section presents major initiatives of the Club that have helped pioneer new thinking on how to protect the environment in the local community. With the aid of multimedia interactive exhibits, the exhibition promotes United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production – and aims to inspire the visitors to get involved in waste-reduction action and to live a green lifestyle.

The Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change has been actively exploring innovative and engaging ways of enhancing public understanding of climate change and sustainable development. We are now proud to present, in collaboration with the local NGO ProjecTerrae, science communicator Dr Stephen Ng, and the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, an exhibition on the theme ‘Beyond 60°S’.
All the landmass and ice shelves of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean south of latitude 60°S are regulated under the Antarctic Treaty System, which has been enacted to set aside Antarctica as a natural reserve, and to devote it to peace and scientific investigations.
This near-pristine wilderness, however, has attracted international attention in recent years as a result of climate change and the growing global demand for resources. This has raised fears that the Antarctic will be exploited for its resources, which may lead to conflicts over sovereignty, the deterioration of its landscape and the depletion of its natural resources.
This fragile global commons, faced with potential environmental threats, can only be safeguarded and conserved through better understanding the true value of its natural resources.
This exhibition provides you with basic information on the natural resources of the Antarctic, and is designed to raise awareness of how the resources of this region can be used sustainably.
About ProjecTerrae ProjecTerrae is a non-profit organization set up by a group of geologists with the aim of promoting earth sciences and the sustainability of global resources. This exhibition benefits from a ProjecTerrae exhibition ‘The Antarctic: A War Over Resources’ held in 2014, after Mr Jackie Chu, founder of ProjecTerrae, completed a fortnight journey with the ‘International Antarctic Expedition’.
About Dr Stephen Ng Dr Ng provided the scientific content for the original exhibition, and this content forms part of the basis of the current exhibition ‘Beyond 60°S’. Dr Ng is an assistant professor in the University of Hong Kong’s Centennial College, with primary research interests in earth sciences, environmental sustainability and science communication.
For further interests, more information is available from The Antarctic of our sustainability hub.
