ASU hosts 'Think Swiss' climate trail exhibition


January 30, 2009

The Global Institute of Sustainability and ASU Global will host the Think Swiss Climate Trail Exhibition from Feb. 5 to 13. The exhibit will rotate to three locations on Tempe Campus and can be viewed weekdays from 9 to 5 p.m.:

• Feb. 5 - Student Services lawn

• Feb. 6 and Feb. 9-12 - Cady Mall, adjacent to the Global Institute of Sustainability

• Feb. 13 - Old Main lawn

There will be a reception and presentation by the Swiss Consulate General on the Old Main lawn on Feb. 13 from 9 to 10 a.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Created by the Embassy of Switzerland, this interactive traveling exhibition illustrates the latest scientific findings on climate change, explains the causes of global warming and its impact on humans and animals, and describes everyday actions families can take to reduce carbon emissions and become climate heroes.

The exhibit is part of “Think Swiss – Brainstorm the Future,” a U.S.-based program on Swiss education, research, and innovation guided by Presence Switzerland, the Swiss State Secretariat for Education and Research, and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.
