A great story of navigation

Some 70% of the surface of the earth is under water. Our distant ancestors saw seas and oceans as barriers they could not traverse. Until they started building boats. From the earliest canoes that neolithic people carved out of tree trunks to the longboats Vikings used to pillage and plunder. From the logs of the great explorers to the importance of today’s maritime transport. Plunge into the history of shipping in the new interactive exhibition A Great Story of Navigation and explore the many discoveries and innovations it has brought.

How can we live together better in the city of tomorrow? In this interactive exhibition Bruxelles Environnement challenges you to come up with an answer to that question. Your task is to look for ways to address urban issues affecting cities like Brussels, such as noise and air pollution. You also explore the impact of green spaces, food production and consumer habits on the climate and everyday life in an urban setting. Happily there is also plenty of room for dreams. What we can do differently. And how we can turn those dreams into reality.
