  • Climate Change Exhibition on "Vanishing Glaciers"

  • Wednesday, 28th March 2018

A climate change exhibition on the theme "Vanishing Glaciers", jointly organized by the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Project Pressure (a UK-based non-profit arts organisation) and the Hong Kong Observatory, was launched on 22 March 2018. The exhibition features photographs of various vanishing glaciers around the world to raise public awareness of climate change and its impacts. With melting glaciers contributing to sea level rise, the Observatory took the opportunity to present the impacts of sea level rise in Hong Kong. The exhibition will run till June 2018 and details can be obtained from http://www.mocc.cuhk.edu.hk/en-gb/.
