Thanks to the high legal standards of the Birds Directive and the tireless efforts of the EU, national governments, stakeholders and volunteers, some iconic species have recovered from the brink of extinction.

ARTEFACTS – A virtual reality exhibition

ARTEFACTS

The virtual reality exhibition ARTEFACTS explores urgent environmental issues of our time, by focusing on the themes of food, energy, water, air and climate. A collaboration between the Berlin Museum für Naturkunde, the photographer J. Henry Fair and the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the exhibition invites visitors to discover in an immersive environment how European policies, based on solid scientific facts, have an impact on their everyday life. The exhibition shows how complex some of those problems are, that sometimes there are no quick solutions, and takes a stand against „alternative facts“. ARTEFACTS is intended to go beyond raising awareness by stimulating reflection as well as action. How do we want to deal with the future of our one and only planet? What are the individual and collective contributions we can all make to help? With its unique presentation ARTEFACTS initiates a dialogue about the environment and invites visitors to get into conversation: With each other and with scientists and experts.
