A new exhibit is coming to the Market Wing Cultural Space inside Kingston City Hall. “Our Climate Quest” will open Thursday, Jul. 4, 2024, and aims to inspire and empower families and youth to take action against climate change through engaging, hands-on experiences, according to a release from the City of Kingston.

“Our Climate Quest” is a national touring exhibition designed by Sudbury-based science center, Science North. With over 35 years of experience creating educational and entertaining scientific exhibits, Science North has developed this project to address one of the most pressing issues of our time: climate change, the City stated. The innovative and interactive exhibit travels across Canada, bringing important environmental education to communities, and helping to inspire the next generation of climate leaders. It will remain at City Hall until Saturday, Jul. 27, 2024.

“We are excited to host ‘Our Climate Quest’ on loan from Science North at City Hall. This free exhibition invites visitors on a journey of fun and interactive experiences to learn more about climate change and our individual impacts on the environment,” said Melanie Banks, Manager of Heritage Programming for the City.

In the release, the City said that visitors to “Our Climate Quest” will embark on an educational journey that includes:  

  • The Climate Action Show: An engaging show that combines science and storytelling to illustrate the impacts of climate change and the power of individual and collective action.
  • Interactive Exhibits: Hands-on activities that allow visitors to explore climate science, renewable energy, and sustainability in an immersive and fun way. 
  • Path to Action: A guided experience helping visitors discover practical steps they can take to reduce their carbon footprint and promote environmental stewardship.
  • Meet Change-Makers: Stories and experiences from real-life environmental advocates and innovators who are making a difference in their communities.  

“Our Climate Quest is your family’s opportunity to get in on the action and make memories that last a lifetime. So, grab the kids and come learn how you can take small steps to big change on the path to climate action,” the City said, noting that this exhibit is free to attend.
