Connected Worlds

A new immersive public experience on sustainability science and systems thinking in the restored Great Hall at the New York Hall of Science.
What is Connected Worlds?


Connected worlds a fully immersive public museum experience on the science of sustainability that will open in the New York Hall of Science’s landmark Great Hall in 2015. Through tracking visitor movement and interaction throughout the 5.000 Sq. Ft. space, this computer-generated world helps deepen insight into how complex ecosystems respond to human intervention and the ways that local impacts can have global effects.

Why Are We Doing it?


There is a strong and urgent need for the public and policymakers to better understand sustainable development and be able to grasp the complexities of the way human and natural systems couple and respond to each other. As the effects of climate change, the burgeoning and increasing urbanization of human populations, and shrinking resources  incfeasingly impact social,  economic, environmental and political systems; we are all called upon to make difficult decisions, tradeoffs, and transform our perception of what it means to be part of the human species on planet Earth. Connected Worlds will help visitors understnad their intimate relationship to the vital environmental systems upon which they depend.
