The global premier of the ‘Where Will We Go?’ exhibition has come to a close, with an outstanding two-week launch in Lima, Peru. The multimedia exhibition comprised of films and photographs, accompanied the COP20 meetings in Lima from 1-12 December 2014, and was widely visited by thousands of delegates to this crucial gathering in the run up to the final status negotiations set for Paris one year from now.

For the past two years, photojournalist Kadir van Lohuizen has circled the globe exploring the consequences of rising sea levels caused by climate change. With support provided by DS, the New York Times and the UN Environment Programme, Kadir travelled to Bangladesh, Fiji, Kiribati, Panama (Guna Yala islands), Papua New Guinea (the Carteret Islands), the United Kingdom and the USA to document some of the areas hardest hit thus far by the effects of climate change.

The brochure is available here for this extraordinary travelling exhibition which is the culmination Kadir’s tireless work across the planet documenting the human face of climate displacement. The multimedia exhibition was made possible through the hard work of Kadir and his team, backed with financial support from DS, UNEP, Eyes on Media, NOOR, and the Netherlands Embassy in Lima. 

The exhibition will now travel to Santiago, Chile and then to Amsterdam at the National Maritime Museum (Het Scheepvaartsmuseum), among many other venues including during the major Paris Climate Conference (COP 21), set for December 2015, as well as possible showings in Geneva, Switzerland; Vaduz, Liechtenstein; the Nobel Institute in Oslo and elsewhere.
