This exhibition was conceived and realized by adelphi as a touring exhibition at the initiative of the German Federal Foreign Office. Regionally specific elements have been developed in collaboration with Fundación Futuro Latinoamericano (FFLA), University of the South Pacific (USP), The Energy Research Institute (TERI), Vitae Civilis, OneWorld, and the Chinese Society for Sustainable Development (CSSD). The exhibition will continue to be displayed around the world over the coming years. Please download the ECC Exhibition Booklet for more information.
The project is based on an original exhibition by adelphi and weltformat on “Environment, conflict and cooperation” (see www.ecc-exhibition.org) that was made possible thanks to financial support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), the German Federal Foreign Ministry, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Deutsche Bank and Deutsche Telekom. In addition, a large number of photo agencies, international organizations, and private individuals have made the copyrights to their images available for this exhibition under facilitated terms.

You can show the "Environment, Conflict and Cooperation" exhibition at your organisation – whether it is a company, school, public agency, educational institution or information point. The exhibition has been displayed during conference, workshops, open days, and special events.
The modular concept of this exhibition allows its structure to be adapted to your spatial and thematic requirements. See the exhibition themes and regional perspectives for an overview on topics covered.
The exhibition is available in English, German, Spanish, Chinese, and Portuguese. Accompanying flyers, posters and other marketing materials can be made available in these languages. We would be happy to offer you accompanying events, such as presentations, panel discussions or conferences. We will provide you with a customised package.
The exhibition ‘travels light’
The exhibition’s modules are made of aluminium parts and plastic display panels. The components are packed in two large crates to make transport easy. The modules are also very simple to assemble. Take a look at the set-up manuals here.
What else should you keep in mind?
Although setting up the exhibition is simple enough it will still take some time. For the full exhibition – 6 modules – we advise to plan for two people working on the set-up, which should take around eight hours. Disassembly is usually quicker, so two people working 4-6 hours would be appropriate.
Also, keep in mind that the exhibition uses lights to create a very special, airy effect. For this reason, and also due to the light weight of the modules, we advise to display the exhibition in a space with adequate protection against the elements, and with sufficient electricity sources. For all other technical details please download this specifications document.
