Change in the Air

The wind blows on the plains. Two male woolly mammoths go head to head while a female and a calf look on. An agile wolverine has smelled the frozen carcass of a European reindeer close by. Ten thousand years ago in Siberia, the time of the mammoths was coming to a close.

In addition to the changing seasons, a process is ongoing that is invisible to the human eye: the ever-changing climate affects plants and animals. The Change in the Air exhibition presents the research on climate change conducted at the University of Helsinki, showcases the effects of climate change on our northern environment and suggests how we can adjust to the changes.

Embark on a journey that will take you from the earliest history of the Earth through past changes and towards the future! Welcome!
