The Botanical Conservatory and Gardens of Geneva presents its new exhibition: #GreenPlanet – botanical missions. In order to demonstrate the multitude of activities necessary to ensure that the botanical missions of the CJBG run smoothly, the exhibition offers a number of the institution’s staff the opportunity to express themselves. The aim is to shed light on their professional activities with conviction and enthusiasm.
By giving the museum staff the chance to share their thoughts, the Botanical Conservatory and Gardens of Geneva is innovating by offering visitors an audio-visual immersion surrounded by this inestimable heritage.
58 shorts films
There are six missions in total - explore, conserve, research, transmit, protect and cooperate - and they are presented in the form of 58 short films. Lasting two to three minutes, they are shown on screens housed in six little chalets, each chalet focussing on one of the 6 missions. A large viewing window and a landscaped arrangement complete the scenography of the mission presented.
Made in partnership with the local television station, Léman bleu, these films will also be broadcast on the local channel in groups of 6 every Saturday at 5 p.m. from 21 May.
This vivid presentation of the different missions of the institution, conveyed with passion and conviction by its staff, helps the public enjoy a better understanding or to discover how the numerous professions observed at the CJBG come together to complement and feed off each other in order, for example, to identify a plant then subsequently to grow and conserve it.
While pursuing its missions, the museum promotes its vision by generating and transmitting this knowledge. By presenting #GreenPlanet – botanical missions, the CJBG invites everyone to participate, in order to foster the durability of this precious heritage. The survival of species – including our own – depends on it.
