We all know plastic doesn't belong in nature, yet we find it everywhere. To make a better future we need to educate the next generation. But we wanted to find just the right place to display the problem. Over 100.000 children visit the Natural History Museum in Oslo each year to see the harmonious interaction of animals and Norwegian nature. The dioramas have not been touched since 1970 so we decided to update the exhibition. With help from The Norwegian Society for the Conservation of Nature, we picked real plastic litter and trashed the exhibition. This way we could show the children the impact plastic has on nature and wildlife and making it impossible to ignore the problem. We also gave them an activity booklet to take home.
There is only one Natural history museum in Norway located in Oslo. Over 100.000 children visit the Natural History Museum in Oslo each year to see the harmonious interaction of animals and Norwegian nature. The museum had a 10% increase in visitors in the campaign period.
