Dubai – A new exhibit at the Museum of the Future explores potential solutions to climate change.
The exhibition, Reimagining Climate Change, was opened to coincide with the 5th annual World Government Summit. The project has been inspired by potential friction points that are of particular relevance to Dubai, such as food security, water supply and sustainable urbanism.
The exhibit is structured around three proposals. AutoFarm uses the garage spaces potentially made obsolete by self-driving cars to develop new food silos. FreshWater Living Jellyfish posits a system of bio-engineered freshwater factories created from jellyfish and mangrove genomes. City Kit explores how the intersection of biotechnology and robotics could increase the speed and effectiveness of building eco-cities.
‘[The Museum of the Future] is a catalyst for future forecasting and study efforts, and plays a pivotal role in setting policies and strategies that enable the world’s governments to benefit from the technologies of the future and their potential,’ explained Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
