Eco-conscious exhibitions exist to help people understand more about sustainability and the problems we are facing.
A big topic like climate change and poverty might take some time to understand. So, instead of reading formal papers, an exhibition provides an interactive way to educate the public.
Exhibition provides a different approach to take in information than traditional means. Moreover, it allows you to connect with other people in a creative ways. As a result of an eco-conscious exhibition, young people will be more aware of their actions and more likely to take action.
These are our five favorite eco-friendly exhibitions to visit in 2022.
Insects & Us
The Photographers’ Gallery
“18 April — 12 June 2022”
A new augmented reality film by Kris Hofmann, Insects & Us, takes us on a journey through an animated world and the intertwined stories of its inhabitants.
We have been relying on insects to pollinate our crops, act as natural pest control agents, and transform dead organic matter into fertile soil.
Insect diversity and abundance have decreased significantly over the past few decades. As long as the current trend continues, human well-being will be in danger.

The Wellcome Collection
What does it mean to be human in the twenty-first century?
That’s the subject of Being Human. We see it as a reflection of our hopes and worries about the future of medical research and how we relate to ourselves, others, and the rest of the world.
The gallery has four sections: Genetics, Minds & Bodies, Infection, and Environmental Breakdown, featuring 50 artworks and items.
In the last chapter, artists like Superflex and Yinka Shonibare talk about modern climate change and show their work. A thought-provoking look at how society, art, and art exhibition will change in the future.
