"Ich möchte insbesondere die Multimedia-Didaktik positiv hervorheben. Durch diese Gestaltung der gesamten Ausstellung wird das Interesse der Menschen für das vielschichtige Thema der Biodiversität geweckt."
"Die Ausstellung ist so vielseitig wie das Thema. Die Informationen werden für Groß und Klein sehr wissenschaftlich bzw. spielerisch weitergegeben. Unbedingt empfehlenswert!"
"Really nice....and highly informative and finally, that selfie in the natural backdrop was superb! Thanks a lot."
Diversity of the organisms, also referred to as “biodiversity”, is an essential basis of our life. It does not only include the diversity of the animal, plant and fungi species, as well as of the microorganisms, and the genetic diversity within the species, but also the complex ecological processes, which result from the interactions between organisms in a diversity of habitats. This diversity is vital for us humans.
However, the biodiversity is under threat. The transformation of the earth by man inevitably leads to the loss of species. However, there is still little reliable knowledge on the extent and impact of this loss. This is where biodiversity research comes in: Its task is to comprehend biodiversity in its entirety and to find ways of preserving it.
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) supports biodiversity research in numerous research projects. In its touring exhibition “DIVERSITY COUNTS! An exhibition through biodiversity”, the DFG opens up the topics of biodiversity and biodiversity research to the public and sensitises the visitors to the importance of biological diversity by letting them experience it for themselves.
At ten stations, using multimedia and multisensory presentations the exhibition conveys interactively what biodiversity is, how it is investigated and why it is so important and so worth protecting. Over 50 exhibits and media installations invite visitors to observe, to join in and to experience for themselves.
The realisation of the exhibition was kindly supported by the
Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft (Association for the Promotion of German Science) and was realised according to the concept of the exhibition advisory board.
