presents the exhibition "Your Planet Needs You"

How can we deal with challenges we are facing?

How do we want to live in the future?

Our Exhibition ''Your Planet Needs You!'' is an interactive exhibition for the whole family. It will be held at the Cyprus International Fair, EXPO (Kiosk 4, 1.100 sqm) from the 13th of October 2017 till the 1st of December 2017 and was designed by Science Museum of London. It was first presented on London’s Science Museum before it began its world tour in places like New York, Kuala Lumpur, Athens, Thessaloniki. The exhibition focuses in some of the most important contemporary issues, like worldwide reduction of natural resources, climate changes, and the need for citizenship activation for a sustainable future.

While the visitors walk through the exhibition they take part into interactive games that aim to entice them into issues and problems that concern the creation of a sustainable future. Amongst the activity there the ‘Journey to the Future’, a driving game where the visitor design a vehicle and can invite his/her friends to a future city. Another game is the ‘future drink game’ where the participants try to trace drinking water. There is also a virtual swimming pool where one can dive. The visitors are given digital ‘survival card’ where their decisions are inscribed. For example visitors are called to design their future houses and decide what types of energy they would need to use in order to power them.

Participants are welcomed by four characters in the briefing area at start of the exhibition. Buz, Eco, Tek and Dug introduce themselves, they talk to us from the year 2050 and they want us to think more seriously about our future (their present..!).

 «... η καλύτερη έκθεση για οικογένειες που έγινε ποτέ»
 «... τρομερή καινοτομία, πολύ προσεκτική προσέγγιση»

«... τρομερή πρόκληση… μας ενημερώνει με διασκεδαστικό και δημιουργικό τρόπο»


Each area of the exhibition is illustrated with impressive graphic designs, whereas all activities are appealing and straightforward, allowing the visitors to solve problems similar to the ones that are presented by real life.

Briefing Area


Four characters from the year 2050 introduce you to the themes of the exhibition and what you will be doing. The visitors are given digital ‘survival card’ where their decisions are inscribed. For example visitors are called to design their future houses and decide what types of energy they would need to use in order to power them. These choices reflect the personality, preferences and inclinations of the participants, revealing their attitude towards future technologies, the tendency to collaborate or not with local communities and finally to undertake political action.





Water shortage is already a crucial issue in quite a few parts of the world.Up to 2050 drinking water will be even more scarce, due to the growth of the population and the development of new modes of life. The water area enables the visitors to reflect upon issues that concern the access to drinking water and the potential techniques and technologies that aim to save and improve the quality of the water.







In the eating area visitors are invited to use the survival card in order to design their own super-food for the year 2050. This game displays various aspects of technology and their application on food production and management. The ‘dinner table’ game looks distribution and examines how the effects of climate change and population increase will turn nutrition into a crucial issue in the future.







We need houses and shelters in order to protect ourselves. But buildings and houses are not just mere shelters. They provide us with a sense of privacy, identity and community. Up to 2050 the designs, material and energy sources used will change in order to respond to the exigency of environmental friendly constructions.









Life would be under bearable if it was about the fulfillment of basic needs. We need to enjoy. Yet entertainment is often taken to be synonymous with over consumption, obtainment and discharge of industrial goods. Before we turn the planet into a huge waste bin we should probably move towards a more ‘ecological’ way of having fun. The exhibition examines six key areas of leisure time from snacks to clothing and traveling. One Key area is the sustainable way of clothing.






The use of transport is one of the major reasons for the increase of carbon dioxide emissions. Up to the year 2050 the mode and means of transportation will need to change in order to adapt to the climate changes and the exigencies of a sustainable and viable future. This area help us to examine how we can move from place to place and have less of the impact on planet in doing so. These include new fuels, like hydrogen and biofuels and the impacts of different modes of transport.





Future City

Visitors will see the 2050 neighborhood they built come to life on the big screen, rising from the ground amongst a future city that demonstrates how everyone’s potential lifestyles combine to affect all our futures.!







The 4 characters of the Exhibition




loves nature and is nearly always outdoors. He’s keen we should preserve the earth’s nature environments and rebuild some that humans have already damaged. He thinks the best way forward is by far for all of us to consume less. He knows a lot about how we can live ‘closer to nature’. He often thinks he’s right and other wrong though, which can be a bit annoying.






is the glue that holds group together. She’s always getting everyone together and is very happy person. She doesn’t like people arguing, and thinks we should all work out solutions to problem by discussing thing with each other. She’s really popular but often has to act as go-between when the others disagree. She cares about her neighbors and is really good at understanding other people’s thoughts and feelings. She believes we should all have the opportunity to enjoy the same things and have the chances in life, no matter where we are in the world.






really likes her technology. Her next favorite thing after using technology is talking about it. Sometimes she is a bit hard to understand though as she talks very loud and fast. She thinks technology can help us carry in doing the things we like, while helping us use the Earth’s resources more efficiently. Tek ’s a brilliant inventor and is always up with ides for new gadgets. But sometimes she forgets that even if the gadget works really well, there might be problems with it, like the amount of energy it needs to work. She ‘s a leader and love to show off.






likes tradition and the old ways of doing things. He believes we can learn a lot from the past about how we tackle the future. He likes things he knows, and is happiest when he’s at home in front of the fire with a cup of tea and good book. He’s not a big adventurer and likes to take life slowly. Dug’s very thoughtful and isn’t the sort to jump up and down and wave his arms about. Instead he strokes his chin and speaks carefully. He can be pretty stubborn!
