World Oceans Day

One Ocean, One Climate, One Future – Together

World Ocean Day is an international day that takes place annually on 8 June and was officially recognised by the United Nations in 2008. The international day supports the implementation of worldwide Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and fosters public interest in the protection of the ocean and the sustainable management of its resources.

Sensing Climate Change - Museum of Open Windows

What if museums became centres for climate research and action?

Museums are often seen as places of research, entertainment and debate, with their work often extending far beyond their own walls. The Museum of Open Windows, a new exhibition stall at Glasgow Science Centre, instead re-imagines museums as a networked infrastructure  – they are a global set of tools and resources enabling citizen science that is aware to local cultures and environments.

Mammal Tunnel

This week, it's Hedgehog Awareness Week (2nd-8th May)

The UK is home to the European hedgehog (Erinaceus europeaus), only one of 17 species that are found worldwide! We know them as a much-loved yet secretive mammal, however they play an important role in our ecosystem. Their sole diet of insects keeps invertebrate populations in check, which helps us enjoy the spring and summer months!
