Dirk Denoyelle will present you Climate change with LEGO bricks. Amazings and Dirk have been creating art and local exhibitions with LEGO bricks for almost 25 years. Softly pushed by his two engineer-daughters, Dirk decided to create a fun but also educational exhibit about climate change and sustainability with LEGO bricks to help raise awareness and engagement, sharing an optimistic viewpoint.
A 10 Minute Museum (10MM) - The Mathematics of Climate Crisis is a new format of a free-standing and mobile mini-museum to be presented in public spaces. Our first 10MM will focus on climate crisis science with a strong emphasis on mathematical modelling. We explain what climate models are, how they are built, and what they can tell us. We will cover mathematical models that predict climate change’s effects on plant and animal life and human activities. The 10MM is open source and features a diverse mix of exhibits (hands-on, interactive, software-based, 3d-printed, etc.).

Coffee is one of the most traded commodities around the globe. Its growth, trade, refinement and consumption connect millions of people. Nearly all of us drink it daily, but we often know very little about this multifaceted and fascinating beverage. The traveling exhibition „Cosmos Coffee - form bean to cup“ offers an informative, sensual and entertaining experience for diverse target groups and embeds the individual enjoyment of coffee in a cosmos of dynamic interdependencies of biology, chemistry, technology, economy and cultural history. Its reference to common rituals and a large variety of communication tools makes the exhibition a unique attraction for visitors of all ages and backgrounds.

The End of our World? In 2019 the Natural History Museum of Toulouse had the pleasure of hosting for it last tour, “Extinctions”, an exhibition created by the Natural History Museum of London. In a desire to be more sustainable in our touring activities, it was decided by mutual agreement, that the NHMT would recycle the entire “Extinction” furniture and panels in order to create its own version of the project: an exhibition that would replace humans in the universe, by insisting on evolution, biodiversity and interdependencies. The purpose of the exhibition is to raise the public's awareness of the preservation of biodiversity through a chronological journey, divided into three independent "worlds", from the appearance of life on Earth, to mass extinctions, to the current biodiversity crisis. Without falling into catastrophism, the discourse will be positive and hopeful.

Heureka's forthcoming exhibition, Facing Disaster, examines human resilience in the face of natural disasters. The narrative focuses on cooperation and trust, while more complex themes such as climate change and social inequality are touched indirectly. The experience combines interactive exhibits, immersive spaces and real life stories and artifacts that illustrate the human experience of living under the threat of immense natural forces. The exhibition aims to empower and encourage visitors to be active, give them hope in spite of adversities and remind them of the importance of being part of a community.
