India got its first Climate Change theatre inaugurated at Pushpa Gujral Science City in Kapurthala, Punjab. The theatre will serve to educate people on climate change. This is only the second theatre in the world to be opened after Canada.
The theatre is 18 metre in diameter and it is set up in a dome-shaped building with a seating capacity of 125 persons. The 25-minute film shows what worst can happen if humans do not take action on current or impending problems which could threaten civilization.
The film starts by giving a glimpse of future – floods, droughts, earthquakes and other natural disasters. Then Earth introduces itself and talks to the audience about current situation and impacts it is experiencing due to global warming.
“It will provide the visitors an unforgettable experience aiming to sensitize the audience about the currently debated subject of Climate Change and Global Warming. Visitors will be made aware of and have a better understanding and appreciation for the latest climate science and the issues surrounding the human role in climate change,” said a Science City spokesperson.
