The exhibition "Environment, Conflict and Cooperation" visualises the dramatic impacts of global environmental change. It was conceived and realised by adelphi and Weltformat.
Using the subjects of water, climate, land, forests and minerals, the exhibition shows the ways in which environmental degradation and resource scarcity lead to conflicts and new security threats as well as how environmental cooperation and sustainable development can contribute to peace and stability. This exhibition focuses on three questions: Why do changes in our natural environment threaten human security? Does the exploitation of natural resources lead to violent conflict? How can sustainable development and environmental cooperation contribute to stability and peace?
The aim of the exhibition is to foster an understanding for the topic among the interested public. Informative texts, pictures and charts convey to the visitor the complex content by giving specific examples. Video and audio features as well as interactive animations complement the picture walls. The exhibition was first shown in London, Dushanbe, Den Haag and Bratislava with additional exhibitions in Germany and abroad.
The Exhibition has been running for almost 10 years, mainly as part of the Climate Diplomacy Initiative in cooperation with the Federal Foreign Office. All content and logistical details are available online in English and Spanish. An overview of the latest updates of the content can be found here.
