Carbon dioxide is essential to life on Earth but over the last century industrialisation has increased levels of it in the atmosphere with devastating impacts. Alongside efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, scientists and researchers are exploring ways to actively remove and store carbon dioxide, a key area of innovation in the fight against climate change. Our Future Planet will inspire visitors through showcasing some of the incredible technologies being developed which, in combination with large reductions in emissions, have the potential to reduce the environmental impact of the industries we rely on every day, from transport and travel, to agriculture and construction.

Visitors to the exhibition will be taken on a journey exploring key areas of scientific and technological innovation, from conserving ancient woodlands to installing processes that prevent carbon dioxide leaving power stations and factories. The exhibition will explore how we can use these techniques to reduce atmospheric carbon, and how this carbon can be held in mass storage or used to create everyday products like building materials, toothpaste or even vodka.

Our Future Planet forms a key part of the Science Museum Group’s climate-focused public programme for the year ahead. As the Group works to raise climate awareness through exhibitions and events, it is also transforming its working practices to be more sustainable. This includes committing to achieve Net Zero by 2033, alongside engaging the public with the science and solutions to the urgent challenges facing our planet.
