Programming at the Biosphere

In addition to its informative and interactive exhibits, the Biosphere offers several guided activities that will:

  • connect you with nature
  • increase your understanding of major environmental issues
  • provide you with ways to protect the environment and reduce your ecological footprint.

Many of our guided activities take place outdoors so be sure to dress for the weather.

Guided activities

A degree of change

Presentation by one of the Biosphere’s guide

Global warming or climate change? These two closely related phenomena are still not well understood. This presentation will demystify these issues of global importance. You will learn about the consequences of global warming and climate change. Creative, proactive steps that citizens and communities can take to adapt to climate change and mitigate their effects will also be presented.

A dose of vitamin N

Nature has healing powers for humans, thanks to the many benefits it provides. When we become disconnected from nature, we develop nature deficit disorder, which can have negative impacts on our physical and psychological health and our relationships with our families and the environment. This presentation, which will be given in the Biosphere’s indoor garden, will make you think about your daily dose of “vitamin N”: are you getting enough?

Outside: a whole new world

The way forward: Communities for a better world

The global population is growing. Our cities are becoming more and more crowed which leads to several challenges. For example, our communities need to find innovative ways to adapt to climate change. This presentation places the eco-citizen at the heart of best practices that develop resilience and sustainability in our communities. We present inspiring solutions that encourage the public to act positively on their living environment.
