With organisers claiming the London Olympics to be the greenest ever, an interactive exhibition regaling tales of the Games’ sustainability to inspire greener living is being organised at the Bedzed Visitor Centre, London.
Titled ‘The One Planet Experience’, it explains how the London Olympic and Paralympic Games aim to be the greenest Games ever. The exhibition hopes to inspire people to save energy and reduce waste.
There is the carbon calculator house which can help understand the ways to make optimum use of electrical appliances and reduce energy bills.
Then, there is the energy velodrome to see how many household appliances can be powered optimally, and test one’s knowledge on the touch-screen energy and waste quizzes!
Swathes of empty seats at most of the venues have been haunting the organisers so much so that they have called in soldiers and students to fill in the desolate galleries.
