The Life Approach: Inspiring Curiosity and Action

As the North East's biggest science centre, Life is committed to helping audiences make sense of complex, controversial and often scary subjects, like climate science. But we also want to inspire and galvanise everyone to consider their role in creating a greener, healthier, and fairer future.

From workshops exploring how human activity has disrupted the Earth’s natural cycles to quirky virtual events for adults considering future food solutions, the Life approach is always engaging, interactive, fun, and relevant.
