Based on the world record nomination from Asia Records Institute (ASRI) and Decision No. WK/USA.INDIA/846/2022/No.302, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change as “World's first climate change museum” on May 12th, 2022.
Established in December 2013, the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change at The Chinese University of Hong Kong is the first museum of its kind in the world. It offers an interactive, multimedia exhibition that showcases valuable collections and important information about climate change. Since its inception, it has attracted nearly 300,000 visitors.
The Museum is one of the core platforms to facilitate the localization, knowledge transfer and partnerships in relation to SDGs. It reaches out to and informs people in Hong Kong and elsewhere about the latest developments in climate change and sustainable development issues.
Through a host of initiatives and projects, the Museum strives to encourage and enable Hong Kong people of all ages and from all walks of life to get involved in carbon-reducing action and living a green and sustainable lifestyle.
