Sounds Of Solidarity – An electric performance by renowned rapper Arivu and The Ambassa band marked the close of the Chennai leg of the People For Climate event hosted by Greenpeace India. Arivu and The Ambassa band performed to a packed auditorium of 1000 people at the closing ceremony of the event. The star highlight of the exhibit was the Museum of Memories that provided glimpses into people’s real struggles with climate change using objects that were damaged in different climate disasters. Along with it a VR station that simulated the stunning Sundarbans allowed visitors to watch an immersive virtual reality film on Sundarbans.

Renowned photographer Palanikumar and his students from the fishing community displayed their photographs as part of a photo exhibition. The exhibition was particularly powerful as it was the fishing community members who were sharing their owns stories through the lens.

‘We want to take Museum Of Memories to different places in India, collect more articles and stitch a story of collective consciousness and resilience. I do believe sharing this real stories of people will help us come together and demand climate justice for the most marginalised groups’ said Amruta SN, Climate and Energy campaigner, Greenpeace India.

Over three days, hundreds of visitors engaged with impactful exhibits, powerfully depicting the urgent need for climate action. Educational institutions were especially invited to give students a deeper understanding of climate change and justice through immersive displays and engaging exhibits.
