Distinguished guests for climate exhibition opening

Jens Stoltenberg, prime minister of Norway, and Rajendra Pachauri, Nobel Peace Prize winner and chair of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, added lustre to the opening of the Klima X exhibition at the Norwegian Technical Museum on 11 December.

Elkem is sponsoring this presentation of the climate change issue, and was also represented at the opening ceremony. Ranked as an international innovation, Klima X shows how technological development not only carries the seeds of climate challenges but also how it can contribute to solutions.

The exhibition highlights facts about the changing climate, the research underpinning this knowledge and not least how the choice of political solutions, technology and consumer behaviour can combat the negative effects.

During the opening, Mr Stoltenberg cited a poem by 12-year-old Klara Råbus, expressing her hope that research would reduce carbon emissions.

This poem was one of more than 2 500 hopes for the climate’s future submitted by children from eastern Norway and buried in a time capsule to be opened a decade from now. Many of these contributions are also presented in a mini-exhibition at Klima X.
