These dramatic changes affect all regions of the planet and are destined to intensify in the coming decades if effective interventions are not implemented.

Digital, olfactory and sound installations, interactive workstations and walls follow one another in the exhibition developed on an area of ​​400 square meters and divided into three distinct moments: experience, awareness and invitation to action.


The exhibition, open to the public from 7 March to 26 May 2019, is promoted by the Natural History Museum of Milan and produced by the Natural History Museum of Milan, Municipality of Milan – Culture, Otm Company and Studeo Group in collaboration with National Geographic Society with the scientific curatorship of Luca Mercalli, President of the Italian Meteorological Society.

Purpose of the exhibition

The intention of the National Geographic Society is to expand the frontiers of exploration, so as to increase knowledge of the planet and give everyone the opportunity to find solutions to build a healthier and more sustainable future. Human existence depends on the conditions of health, balance and sustainability of the earth, but at the same time subjects the Earth, and all that lives there, to dangerous pressures.

We have reached a global turning point, and this determines the need and need to act immediately in a decisive manner. The role of society is to seek the truth and to highlight it. National Geographic Society promotes awareness on a global level, and proposes solutions aimed at improvement.
