Climate Caravan

The Climate Caravan is a project conceived in 2018 by the French Institute in Serbia, being implemented since 2020 in partnership with the Center for the Promotion of Science and with the support of the Delegation of the European Union to Serbia and the Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Serbia.

The project "Climate Caravan 3.0 – one small step for a man, one giant leap for nature − biodiversity and climate change in Serbia" links the fight against climate change and the protection of biodiversity, with the aim of raising the awareness of citizens about the importance of learning about and identifying protected species in Serbia. The central segment is an exhibition which showcases various global consequences of climate change (melting of the polar ice caps, rising temperatures and acidification of the seas, climatic extremes, such as fires). The exhibition emphasises the direct impact of climate change on biological diversity, but also on the spread of invasive species, high mountain and wetland habitats, and the biodiversity of cities, and offers answers on how to contribute to the preservation of biodiversity. The exhibition is complemented by interactive exhibits designed by the Center for the Promotion of Science.
