We’ve written recently about the best sustainability events happening in 2022 and in this blog we want to highlight one in particular that we’re especially excited about attending; Our Time On Earth.

In May 2022 this major exhibition is opening at the Barbican in London - celebrating the power of global creativity to transform the conversation around the climate emergency. Through art, design, science, music and philosophy, the exhibition presents a range of radical visions for the future of all species.

Our Time On Earth

The exhibition will be a journey through immersive, interactive installations and digital works; inviting visitors to experience a range of perspectives of our shared planet, exploring Earth as a community to which we all belong – humans as just one species among millions.

Aiming to reignite respect for our essential and complex biosphere and inspire awe and wonder for our beautiful planet, the exhibition explores different ways of existing on Earth and finding ways to reconnect with them, while also looking at the role technology has to play in deepening our understanding and connection to the natural world. Our Time On Earth encourages visitors to take an active role and leave feeling empowered to make positive change.

The betternotstop team will be attending the exhibition when it opens and we can’t wait! It promises to provide multiple global perspectives to help everyone look at the positive possibilities of an alternative future, and embrace the wonder of the natural world. 

Belong, Imagine, Engage

Our Time on Earth presents 18 works, including 12 new commissions, from 12 countries around the world to create a series of innovative new collaborations. Bringing together academics, architects, artists, activists, designers, ecologists, engineers, environmental campaigners, researchers, scientists, technologists and writers, the exhibition highlights the need to work in collaboration across disciplines to tackle climate change together.

The exhibition takes place across three interconnected sections: Belong, Imagine and Engage, designed to create a shift in consciousness, changing the way we think about the natural world:

  • Belong explores humanity’s connection to other species and the understanding of our place in the biosphere.

  • Imagine explores positive possibilities in a near-future world based on a new value system.

  • Engage encourages and shares how we can take collective action for widespread systemic change.

The exhibition promises to be an immersive exploration of radical ideas for the way we live; one where technology brings us closer to nature, and indigenous insight reconnects us to our roots.
