This exhibition features the result of an 18-month community engagement project (2021–2022), ECF Mobilizing Community Climate Action by Future Museum Curators. The project is supported by the Environment and Conservation Fund (ECF). It recruited 70 secondary school students and, through a unique model of experiential and problem-based learning, equipped them with the knowledge and skills to become ‘Future Museum Curators’, and inspire action on climate change and sustainable development through exhibitions.
Earlier this year, the well-trained Future Museum Curators presented the results in 10 virtual exhibitions dealing with various sustainability challenges, such as climate change, carbon reduction and waste management. After public voting and a final assessment by a panel of expert judges, the winning Best Future Museum Curators teams were selected to work with the MoCC on a new physical exhibition on a theme of their choice, to be presented at the MoCC. The ‘Humanity–Climate–Nature: A Future Museum Curators’ Exhibition’ explores how human activity gives rise to sustainability challenges and calls for immediate climate action from the community to tackle these threats.
