Exploring the Greatest Opportunity of Our Generation

The world crossed a point of no return in 2016.

There is now enough Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere that even if we stopped emitting pollution today, we will still experience severe climate change in our lifetime.

How will we secure fresh water?

Global demand for fresh water could be 40% greater than supply by 2030.

With a rising global population and increasing challenges to water management, we will face severe water scarcity unless we find new ways of creating fresh water for food and industry.

What will we eat?

70% more calories need to be produced in order to feed the 2050 global population.

More extreme weather events and reduced natural resources will make our food supply unsustainable. We need to radically rethink food production in order to meet this demand.

Where will we live?

Sea level rises will displace more than 375 million people if global temperatures rise by an average of 2 degrees Centigrade.

Melting polar ice, desertification and more extreme climate events will put our cities and homes at risk, forcing us to find new ways of living.

Climate Change Reimagined: Dubai 2050

Climate Change Reimagined: Dubai 2050

The Museum of the Future is a unique initiative by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum that explores the future of science, technology and innovation.

The exhibition re-imagines the three biggest challenges facing us from climate change – how to create enough fresh water, how to feed the world, and how to build (and rebuild) our cities  – as a opportunities to radically transform the way we live and create a better, stronger, and more vibrant global economy.

Visitors step into a future world where new levels of self-sufficiency, plentiful resources, and exciting uses of technology and biology have improved our quality of life dramatically.

It imagines a world where, before reaching the extinction threshold, we grabbed the opportunities for innovation and re-invention and transform our economy into an epicentre of climate solutions.

In this future scenario, not only did we pioneer new ways to survive the challenges of climate change but also paved the way for a regenerative world that can sustain itself long into the future.

What does this future look like?
How will we provide water, food and shelter?

Welcome to a tour of our future industries. Welcome to Climate Change, Reimagined.
