With displays about climate, water and resources as well as peacemaking and conflict mitigation, the exhibit addresses a range of complex issues. The goal is to demonstrate how scarcity of resources and destruction of the natural environment can lead to security threats and conflict. By cooperating and emphasizing sustainability, however, peace can have a better chance of success.

The display is free and open to the public.
