Event details

The University of York has been part of the Resilience in East African Landscapes project (REAL), an interdisciplinary research project on human-environment interactions to enable sustainable use of East Africa’s environment and resources. The Stockholm-based exhibition design agency Expology have created an interactive exhibition based on the research results.

The exhibition aims to break down the complex concept of climate change into something more graspable and concrete. Viewers will experience different ways of investigating socio-environmental transformations and different voices from Kenya and Tanzania, taking them closer to stories on the environmental changes and its social, political and historical contexts. 

Getting Closer started its International tour February 2019 at the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum of World Cultures in Cologne. The exhibition is based on the insights produced by Resilience in East African Landscapes (REAL), a Marie Curie Actions Innovative Research and Training Network (ITN), funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme.
