CLIMATE PLANET opens in Aarhus in June 2017

One of the largest technological spectacles of recent years awaits you next summer in Aarhus. CLIMATE PLANET is a beautiful, magnificent and mesmerising experience for the whole family, as well as a timely eye-opener for the reality of our planet if we don't change our current course.

Like a meteor from the sky, a ginormous globe will descend into Aarhus this Summer. Inside awaits a captivating technological display for all to enjoy, with a particular focus on climate changes and challenges on our planet. This extraordinary experience originates from Aarhus, which is being appointed European Capital of Culture in 2017.

As you enter this stunning spherical construction you will find another globe hovering in the centre, with a diameter of 4 metres. Through live satellite transmissions this globe will show an entire real time projection of our planet - capturing the same view astronauts can see through shuttle windows in space. Further still, CLIMATE PLANET will be able to show us much more than just the real time projection. It will have the ability to show us the past and predict the future as well; as far into the past as 1905 when the first worldwide weather data was collected, and several decades into the future, provided we continue on our current trajectory. The Danish weather and climate expert Jesper Theilgaard is the voice and author behind the story of CLIMATE PLANET, which has been developed in collaboration with NASA, with the purpose to show a combined and complete view of the weather across the entire planet - all at once. It will be a spectacular and colossal experience, as well as a daunting eye-opener concerning the reality that awaits, if we do not take these changes seriously.

The impressive globe, CLIMATE PLANET, will be encapsulated within the 25 metre spherical construction. Upon it's surface will be printed a razor sharp image of the Earth  - a construction which, in itself, will be a magnificent and eye-catching installation within the urban space.

Experience CLIMATE PLANET

CLIMATE PLANET opens to the public during next summer's 6 week school holidays. During this time, you'll also be able to watch a 40 minute show on the globe, in which climate change will be visualised - beginning with pre-industrialisation and ending far into the future. CLIMATE PLANET will be available for special bookings and events both before and after the school holidays e.g. for schools, institutions and commercial partners.

CLIMATE PLANET premiers on June 3rd during the local event 'Explore the world with Aarhus' on June 2nd-3rd 2017, arranged by Aarhus City. Additionally, it also houses SPIRE 17; an event which will bring together one thousand young minds from all around the world to find solutions to UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

CLIMATE PLANET is unique, no event like it has ever previously existed anywhere in the world. So put a mark in your calendar now and look forward to the summer next year!
