Using Virtual Reality in the Fight Against Climate Change: A Social VR Experience
Hosted by Unity
Featuring Marina Psaros, Global Sustainability Lead, Unity, and Author, The Atlas of Disappearing Places: Our Coasts and Oceans in the Climate Crisis; and Adam May, Producer, Drop in the Ocean
Hitch a ride on a jellyfish and float through the ocean to experience the microplastic pollution crisis plaguing the world’s oceans. Using real-time 3D technology, participants put on Quest2 headsets and are transformed into a two-inch tall version of themselves—about the size of plankton. You’ll learn why the need to protect the ocean is so urgent and how content producers are using technology to create engaging innovative experiences to inspire change.
