LINGCLIM was one of seven University of Bergen research projects that were selected to have exhibitions at the Christie Conference the 25th of April 2014.

The exhibition was built in cooperation with Kulturoperatørene and consisted of a “glacier-climate tunnel” where the conference participants were presented with quotes picked from the IPPC Working group I report. After going through the climate tunnel they were asked to state their emotions on an emotion wheel designed by LINGCLIMs psychologist, Gisela Bøhm.¨

The emotions that had the highest frequency were “sadness” and “worry”, but also “hope” had a high score. In clear minority were the feelings of anger, guilt and compassion”.
