Denmark is known for its efforts to be a climate-friendly country, and Aarhus is no exception – especially as the city puts on special events throughout 2017 to celebrate its year as European Capital of Culture.

Climate Planet is a unique exhibition in which real-time transmissions of environmental factors and man-made pressures on the planet are shown on a giant globe, suspended inside a globe-shaped exhibition enclosure.

The globe-within-a-globe is also loaded with climate data going all the way back to the beginning of the 20th century, which is used as part of the exhibition to display how the earth’s climate has changed over time and how academics predict it will change – for better or worse – in the near future.
