The Elumenati’s GeoDome Theater will help two organizations tell their stories at COP15, the global climate summit in Copenhagen this month.
Interactive GeoDome presentations will explore global climate data with Sweden’s Norrkoping Visualization Centre, and human interaction with the environment and solutions for a sustainable future with global climate activist organization 350.org. In the GeoDome, interactive models of data from NASA and NOAA are digitally projected inside a dome theater to create an environment that enables meaningful dialogue about complex issues like climate change.
At this month’s global climate summit in Copenhagen The Elumenati’s GeoDome Theater will help two organizations tell their stories: Sweden’s Norrkoping Visualization Centre will bring their GeoDome to the Arctic Venue, December 12-14, for interactive presentations on global climate data designed to support decision-making and public dialogue. The global climate activist organization 350.org will be at KlimaForum, December 15-18, using the GeoDome to explore human interaction with the environment and solutions for a sustainable future.
The events are part of COP15, the fifteenth meeting of environment ministers who meet annually under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. At least 15, 000 people are expected to attend the conference, which will set the terms and targets for greenhouse gases in the atmosphere over the next several years.
"We’re excited and honored that the GeoDome enables our partners to communicate the big-picture context of these important issues, " said David McConville, co-founder of The Elumenati. "By illustrating the relationships between climate change and other interconnected global issues, both Norrkoping Visualization Centre and 350.org show the pressing need for visionary solutions that are comprehensive, systems-oriented, and interdisciplinary.”
The GeoDome immersive learning environment is a uniquely effective tool for creating focused, inquiry-based learning experiences. Consisting of a digital projection system and a portable dome theater created by The Elumenati, the GeoDome will use the Uniview software platform from SCISS AB for the Copenhagen presentations. Participants will interactively explore dramatic scientific visualizations from NASA, NOAA, and the American Museum of Natural History that demonstrate ecological principles at local, global, and cosmic scales. Information is presented in a systems-based context that makes complex concepts easy to understand while instilling a sense of wonder.
The GeoDome’s presence at the events in Copenhagen illustrates the unparalleled effectiveness of the portable and rapidly deployable system as a tool for education and facilitating dialogue. A network of GeoDome users collaborate on presentations across the globe, communicating with audiences from politicians to the general public about complex concepts like climate and how it is affected by human action.
