Side Event

The Museum of Tomorrow in Rio de Janeiro

Roberto Marinho Foundation

Date and Time
27 October 2010 13:15 - 14:45

Tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 10)

Designed to be a platform to think the future, the Museum of Tomorrow will be inaugurated in the city of Rio de Janeiro in 2012. The narrative of the Museum explores two ethical axes: sustainability and solidarity. In the area of sustainability, it aims to discuss “How will we live?” And in the area of solidarity, the question is “How do we want to live?” Four irreversible developments will set the tone of the Museum experience: • climate change; • population growth and its implications; • integration (economic, social, communication); • diversity (biological, ecological, cultural). The project is an initiative of the City of Rio de Janeiro in partnership with the Roberto Marinho Foundation, a Brazilian organization devoted to education, communication and conservation of cultural and natural heritage. During this side event, we expect to present the project to parties interested in Communication, Education and Public Awareness and to organizations from all over the world who might contribute with information, research, artifacts, and networking to the Museum.
