The water issue is one of the 21st century’s greatest challenges. Abundant but unequally distributed on Earth, this resource is today threatened by climate change and the dangers of overuse. Improving access to water, which is still suffering from glaring disparities, is one of the Millennium Development Goals.
Visiting this exhibition, you can venture deep into the heart of the tropical rainforests -of Latin America, Africa or Asia- and discover how far they are essential for the future of our Earth!
Malaria, which is an infection caused by a parasite transmitted to man by mosquitoes, kills more than 1 million people every year. The disease is one of the most deadly on the planet, and threatens one third of humanity, essentially populations in tropical regions. Malaria is a major obstacle to development, and is a very real challenge for research.
The climate plays a decisive role in the lives of humanity, resources, human development and health. The ocean has an essential part in the complex mechanisms that govern climate. By storing heat received from the sun and subsequently moving it from the tropics towards the temperate regions, the ocean interacts with the atmosphere and thus helps to make our planet inhabitable. The onset of global warming makes the study of the relationships between the ocean and the climate more than ever a vital challenge for science.
This exhibition aims to inform the public – and especially young people – about the huge role the ocean plays in the Earth’s climate and the climatic changes now taking place. The ocean plays a crucial role, yet this is still not well-known to the general public.
Whether for health, agriculture or transport, water is the essence of our daily existence. And yet as the 21st Century gets underway, our planet is facing a major water crisis. The tiny proportion of fresh water on the earth is unevenly distributed, badly managed and inadequately protected. Indeed, fresh water is in short supply in many developing countries.
This exhibition of 23 photographs aims to illustrate the research projects being carried out around the world. Scientists from all fields are working to try to understand the causes and effects of declining fresh water resources in a bid to better protect existing resources and distribute them more evenly.
