Offering stunning 360º views across Edinburgh’s picturesque cityscape and Royal Park, Our Dynamic Earth is perfectly situated to host the Global Energy Systems Conference 2013.
The venue is located just a short walk from the picturesque Royal Mile, the Scottish Parliament and Edinburgh Waverly Station.
Our Dynamic Earth is the centrepiece of a major urban regeneration plan, named the Holyrood Project. Built on the former site of the Scottish & Newcastle Brewery and British Gas works, the land was gifted to the people of Edinburgh on the condition that it would be used to create a landmark building to host an exhibition that was in the public good.
With considerable funding coming from the Millennium Commission, and further sponsors including Edinburgh City Council and Scottish Enterprise Edinburgh & Lothians, it was decided that the exhibition would be based on a concept that was appropriate to Edinburgh – its landscape and history: an exhibit that would tell the story of the evolution of the planet we live on, Our Dynamic Earth.
