Inspiring Curiosity. Empowering Action

At Life, we believe everyone has a role to play in creating a greener, healthier, fairer future.

Through workshops, exhibitions and events, we encourage visitors of all ages to understand the issues in an interactive and thought-provoking way.

Climate change can be a complex and scary subject. But by empowering and listening to our visitors, we give them the opportunity to consider what they can do individually and collectively.

We do this by:
