Green Revolution

At the Bob Jones Nature Center (TX), milk jugs make a visual statement about water usage.Would your organization like to reduce its carbon footprint? Have you thought about ways to incorporate/reuse/recycle materials from old exhibits, activities, or projects? Would renewable energy, organic food, climate change, and other environmental issues strike a chord with your visitors or community?

SITES is partnering with Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry to present Green Revolution, a fully digital exhibition that gives host organizations the power to build (and control) their own "eco-zibit." In an effort to dramatically reduce our carbon footprint, Green Revolution doesn't "travel" on trucks. Instead, it's transmitted online—from a secured website to your computer. There are no crates needed.

We supply partners with professionally produced design files for exhibition panels and interactives, and YOU take those blueprints to build your own presentation with reused or repurposed materials. A perfect opportunity to give new life to old items while decreasing clutter and increasing the storage capacity of your facility, Green Revolution is a multi-platform initiative that focuses on several major themes: waste, energy, green pioneers, gardening and composting, green construction, and our carbon footprint.

Reduce, Rethink, Recycle, ReduceMultiple hands-on learning stations give this exhibition a green light for families and school groups. But, it has something for everyone—as compelling for kids as for those who have a more earnest environmental message to convey.

Design plans and graphics will be available only to Green Revolution participants.
