Climate Quirks, Taiwan Resilience

Science Communication
Event Date | 2023/03/30 - 2023/05/07 Address | Taiwan

Scientific research has confirmed that the impacts of climate change are urgent and have attracted high international attention. As global temperatures continue to rise, the climate becomes more extreme and unpredictable. We must coexist with extreme weather and find ways to live in harmony with nature, demonstrating Taiwan's resilience.

This is the purpose of the \Climate Quirks, Taiwan Resilience\ exhibition, a collaborative effort between the National Science Council's Department of Natural Sciences and Sustainable Development, the National Science and Technology Center for Disaster Reduction, and the National Museum of Science and Technology. Over the course of four years and with different exhibition themes, the exhibition uses a wide-ranging and in-depth approach to science communication to help more people understand how Taiwanese scientists estimate climate change data and find suitable strategies to deal with its impacts.

In 2023, the exhibition opens with the \Overture\ theme, based on the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) on climate change. It analyzes \the impacts, responses, and adaptation that Taiwan faces\, introduces \the work of Taiwanese climate scientists\, explains \the difference between climate change estimation and meteorological forecasting\, and emphasizes \the importance of localized climate data\. With vivid illustrations, accessible language, and multimedia interactions, more people can understand the government's policies, scientific research achievements, and global issues of concern.

Exhibition Zones:

Zone A: Living with Climate - Climate is closely related to our daily lives, from planting crops according to the seasons to selecting clothes based on temperature. Scientists have invested efforts to understand weather and climate change so that we can live comfortably. With the advancement of technology, we can now analyze and forecast weather patterns better. How can we use the knowledge of the past to understand the present and interpret the future weather phenomena?

Zone B: Quirks and Resilience - In the worst-case scenario of global decarbonization failure, the number of summer days in Taiwan could increase from 130 to 210 by the end of the century, while winter days could decrease from 70 to 0. Rainfall patterns could become \drier in dry areas and wetter in wet areas,\ which poses challenges to Taiwan's agriculture and water resources. What kind of adaptation methods and strategies can we use to slow down the pace of climate change and find innovative ways to coexist with unpredictable climate?

Zone C: Estimating Climate Change - Although current science cannot precisely \predict\ climate change in the next century, scientists have developed several scenarios of greenhouse gas emissions for the future world. By using Earth System Models and supercomputers to simulate the estimated future climate in these scenarios, they evaluate risks and develop appropriate strategies to cope with climate change impacts

The main purpose and value of this event is through vivid and simple and easy -to -understand text, patterns, animation and interactive games, so that the public can contact and understand the scientific background and essence of the scientific research on climate change in Taiwan, and warm the topic of global warming. It is no longer just a "global", which can make the public experience and understand the impact of Taiwan under the warmth of Taiwan. Although this event is a special exhibition, after the special exhibition is over, some content will still be retained as the permanent exhibition, and the rest are used as accessories for the tour, so that people who miss the special exhibition also have the opportunity to see other places. There were a total of 19,104 visitors in this event, exceeding the number of visitors during the New Year's Eve of January this year. In addition to the attractiveness of the display, the crowds of tourist tourism after the epidemic and the large -scale concerts in Kaohsiung City have been related to foreign tourists. During the exhibition period, 30 guides were provided on holidays, with a total of 452 people. The group guides 12 group guides, serving a total of 1,072 person -times. With the exhibition event, "What would you think of the climate change?" Voting, a total of 1,234 people voted. AR filter: IG social media publicity: 1,100 times.
