Exhibition on climate change coming to Bahrain

An exhibition that hopes to offer up a 360-degree view of the climate crisis is coming to Bahrain next month.

Held at Studio 244 inside the Arad Bay protected area and park, the exhibition is set to run between Sunday November 3 and Thursday November 14.

You can visit the exhibition for free between 4pm and 8pm Sunday through Thursday.

The exhibition explores every aspect of the climate crisis in the hopes of making sure visitors are fully informed about the many critical issues at hand.

Climate, the 360° Exhibition, was created by La Cite des sciences in Paris in partnership with the UN Environment and the French Institute. It is being hosted in collaboration with the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities and the Supreme Council for Environment.

Concern for the environment is something the Bahraini government has been focusing on in recent years.

Last month it was revealed that the government was considering banning plastic fishing nets and replacing them with fibrous plant materials that were previously used.

Volunteers across the Kingdom have been tackling plastic pollution at beaches and other areas - last week, port workers collected 350kg of waste during a clean-up in Hidd.

Since April 2019, nearly 20 tonnes of rubbish has been removed from Bahrain’s waters by divers.

And last month, a beach clean across 12 beaches in the Kingdom meant 10,000 kg worth of rubbish was collected.
Nov 3-14. Arad Bay Protected Area & Park, Muharraq (no number).
