The Next Day is more than an exhibition. It is an immersive experience into the impacts of climate change in the cities and the lives of people, as well as a reflection on the opportunities for a low carbon future and a fairer and more balanced life, with sustainable and inclusive cities for all inhabitants.
Relating cities and climate emergency is essential in the debate and confrontation of greenhouse gas emissions. Although they occupy only about 2% of the land surface, urban centers account for 70% of the emissions according to the United Nations, and for approximately 70% of the global consumption of energy. They are also the home to over 50% of the population of the planet – and this number is constantly growing.
The climate crisis is a human crisis. It relates directly to all that is most important in our lives: health, energy, education, social, gender and race equality, infrastructure, mobility, food, and security.
The problem is that we simply do not make this connection. But what if we do? Well, in this case, we can immediately start to build a different future. The message from the scientists is clear and we have a short window of opportunity to do something about it. But there is time!
And this is what The Next Day wants to show. Through immersive experiences, with the help of LED panels, interactive floors, touch screens, 2D and 3D mapping and plenty of information, we invite the visitors to feel the effects of the climate in the cities and in our lives, and to learn about the solutions and opportunities we have ahead of us in areas such as the economy, housing, renewable energies, mobility, new business, and much more. We believe that the feelings will generate a desire for transformation.
So, come along and feel and transform!

Welcome to the past. And to the future. To look ahead, we must not only go back in time, but also understand today. Climate change relates to cities and our lives. Which city do you dream of in the next day?
An LED floor shows the duality between good and bad in the cities, and each visitor will discover their carbon footprint using our calculator – how much do you and your family emit every year?
Climate change is democratic; it affects the whole world. The cities, however, are not so democratic. This means that not everybody will feel damage in the same way. What damage?
In this dark room, 110 LED cells on the walls and ceiling show actual extreme weather events around the world, in a truly immersive experience with 5.1 sound. Feel the tremors, wind and fog and realize that nobody can live with this climate intensity for more than 5 minutes.
Who are the victims of all this destruction? Extreme weather such as storms, hurricanes, and floods, among many others, leaves a trail of destruction in its wake.
This is designed to raise awareness and the public "gets to know" actual people who have suffered from the climate crisis around the planet. A giant panel and vertical screens help tell the stories of these people – it could be any one of us living in an urban center.
One day there was Pangaea. And also the dinosaurs, Ancient Egypt, Greece and the Roman Empire. After the Industrial Revolution came the megacities, complex metropolis and their networks of technology. The light came on.
With 2D and 3D projections on two walls, the floor and in a terrestrial globe, the visitor can discover the history of mankind and environments from Pangaea up to the cities of today, starting with the first small gatherings.
The last module of the exhibition introduces a message of hope. What will the city of the future be like that we all dream of? LED towers will show much more organized, clean and livable spaces, buildings with vertical gardens, green roofs, renewable energies, efficient public transport, universal basic sanitation, balanced microclimate, and technology.
Indeed, some cities in the world are already like this. And good examples deserve to be shared.
To help in the understanding, between the rooms of [In] Humanity and [Trans] Formation, there is an immersion module, with touch panels containing interactive infographics and entertaining games for the visitors to delve deeper into the subject and to foresee both the most pessimistic forecasts of scientists for the future and to view the benefits of adopting more sustainable approaches, as well as the possible solutions for a low carbon economy.
Current cities that are already good examples are also highlighted, in order to show that transformation is possible.
