People’s Museum of Climate Justice: From memories to heroes
Climate justice museum commemorates stories of struggle and hope
In commemoration of the 10th year of Super Typhoon Yolanda (known internationally as Haiyan), the People’s Museum of Climate Justice is poised to open its doors at the University of the Philippines Tacloban on November 6, 2023.
The People’s Museum of Climate Justice will pay homage to the stories of climate survivors through a poignant collection of objects of memory and art pieces. It invites visitors to step into the shoes of those who have endured the devastating consequences of the climate crisis, while fostering a deeper understanding of the pressing need for climate action.
Organized by environmental non-profit organization Greenpeace Philippines, the exhibit is co-created and co-curated with climate-impacted communities from Tacloban, Bohol, Manila, Davao, and other vulnerable regions in the Philippines. The exhibit features everyday tools, mementos, and significant items contributed by community members, each item a vessel of stories recounting their encounters with extreme weather events and the profound impact of climate change.
The exhibit’s opening coincides with the arrival of the iconic Greenpeace ship, the Rainbow Warrior, visiting the Philippines for the 2023 Greenpeace Ship Tour. In Tacloban City, it will be mounted from November 6 to November 10. Subsequently, the People’s Museum of Climate Justice will make a stop in Manila and will reopen on November 22.
