Klimaatmuseum at the UvA

This academic year (2023-2024) we are developing a pop-up Klimaatmuseum at the UvA, together with students. The opening will take place in May 2024, with installations, art and programs.

The mission? Making the climate crisis more comprehensible and tangible, and offering surprising and inspiring perspectives, so that we can move more actively and urgently towards a sustainable world.

In the Klimaatmuseum you will discover, among other things, what climate research is being done at the UvA across various faculties. The multidisciplinary approach will provide new insights on the topic.

Are you a UvA student and want to get involved?

Nice! You can help by:

  • Being interviewed for the target group research. This takes about 1.5 hours and will take place in October.
  • Contributing your own (already-existing) climate-related research, project or artwork.
  • Helping to organize programs – think of debates, workshops and presentations.
  • Helping with devising and testing museum installations – to convey the UvA’s climate research in an educational and interactive way.
  • Helping with the production of the museum installations and the pop-up museum as a whole. This will only take place in 2024.

Please fill out this form. We will then contact you as soon as possible.

Follow the development

This is a project for and by students. In October we started collecting research conducted at the UvA on climate to develop the project’s narrative. Ideas for museum installations are then devised and tested, so that the content can be conveyed in an educational and interactive way. At the same time, artworks are being curated and various programs are being prepared. Finally, all the ideas will be realized and produced, and the pop-up Klimaatmuseum will be visitable from May to August 2024.

How do you feel about the climate?

We want to hear from the UvA students about their hopes and concerns regarding the climate crisis so that the project can be developed to speak directly to them. Currently we are conducting quantitive and qualitative research on this.
