Description

Tipping Points invites you to explore a world of change happening beneath the waves of our Arctic
seas, and how our natural environment and human societies are adapting in response.
The changes the Earth is now undergoing, as a result of our (in)actions, risk tipping us into completely
new and unknown ecosystems.


Through Tipping Points, we want to highlight the important work that the scientific community is
conducting to understand and predict tipping points, as well as shine a light on ways that societies
have adapted to constant change in the Arctic region.
While talking about tipping points can be scary, our intention with this Exhibit is not to shock, but to
educate. Dive in!


Tipping Points is an exhibition developed by the Horizon Europe research project ECOTIP.
ECOTIP focuses on understanding and predicting changes in Arctic marine biodiversity and their
implications for two vitally important marine ecosystem services: fisheries production, which is the
economic lifeblood of many Arctic communities, and carbon sequestration, which has important
feedbacks to the global climate.


The project has a strong focus on understanding changes in the seas around Greenland. Therefore,
as part of the project, two scientific research cruises and fieldwork in Greenlandic communities have
taken place.


ECOTIP is led by the Technical University of Denmark and brings together leading scientists from
15 institutes across Europe and Japan. You can find out more about the project at ecotip-artic.eu
