Through the six themed chalets comprising the “#GreenPlanet – botanical missions” exhibition, the staff at the Botanical Conservatory and Gardens explain their passion and their missions.
The #GreenPlanet – botanical missions exhibition reveals the hidden sides of the Botanical Conservatory and Gardens and the numerous specialists from different disciplines who work together to name, cultivate and conserve the plants.
What does the work of a botanist or a gardener-botanist involve? What is a herbarium for? What do the scientists study? How do we relate to the plant world and what is our shared destiny? These are existential questions at a challenging time, when our planet is in danger and we need to reconsider our destructive way of life.
While continuing to pursue its many missions, the institution presents its vision: to generate and pass on the best possible knowledge about the world of flora and fungi and make our planet an amazing, sharing and inspirational place.
A museum committed to action
The Botanical Conservatory and Gardens are a living, modern and ecological museum. Founded on the botanical tradition, its work at present looks to the future, seeking solutions to the loss of biodiversity. The institution looks after rare collections while multiplying or even re-introducing endangered species… An invaluable heritage is exchanged between botanical gardens around the world.
