Busan Climate Change Experience Education Center
  • Address118, Hakhak-ro, Buk-gu, Busan

It is an experiential educational institution to see, feel, and understand climate change. As you pass through a total of 8 zones, collect mileage that accumulates as you reduce the amount of carbon, and make a clean earth, you will naturally familiarize yourself with the concept of climate change. Since Green School runs programs such as renewable energy, natural ecology, and eco-friendly experience, be sure to check them out in advance if you are interested. In particular, the Busan Climate Change Experience Education Center is a highlight itself as it has a rainwater recycling facility and an eco-friendly energy production facility for the geothermal system inside.

An exhibition visit with a tour guide by a climate commentator is available 5 times a day (10:00am, 11:00am, 2:00pm, 3:00pm, 4:00pm). Green School, which offers experience programs such as making dishwashing detergent and natural mosquito repellent, takes 60-90 minutes with a participation fee for each program.

Reservations can be made on the Buk-gu Office website.
