World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Pavilion


World Wide Life Fund for Nature Pavilion

THEME: River, Estuary and City

PAVILION: The exterior and interior walls are decorated with children’s drawings blown up to gigantic proportions. These drawings interpret the exhibition theme and the future urban life through the eyes of children. The Pavilion takes a drum-like shape, using its space in an efficient manner to tell its thematic story.

EXHIBIT: The organization formerly known as the World Wildlife Fund (although it still retains that name in North America) was founded in 1961 by Dr. Julian Huxley and retains its headquarters in Switzerland. In the WWF Pavilion, visitors will follow a fixed route and will be led through four different chapters. The four chapters are entitled “The Wonders of the Natural World,” “The Challenges We Face,” “People and Nature Living in Harmony” and “Not Too Late to Save Our Planet.” All four will reflect the importance of taking action now to battle man-induced climactic change that will have devastating effects on the environment and our future, and will illustrate ways in which we as individuals can act to conserve energy and resources, reduce greenhouse gasses and live in a more environmentally responsible manner. In the first chapter, a large globe illustrates the biodiversity of the planet. The second chapter discusses the effects of global warming and how climate change impacts our planet, and what might happen if nothing is done. The third chapter has a small theater in which a film that displays WWF initiatives to lead the fight against catastrophic climate changes and promotes the needs of the natural world on a global level. The final chapter will illustrate how ordinary people doing simple things can help reduce greenhouse gasses, save energy and promote a zero-carbon lifestyle.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping area listed for the Pavilion.
