As we approach 2020—the start of a “decade of action” leading up to the 2030 deadline set for achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—we are pleased to announce the launch of a new round of MY World 360˚.
Recognizing the experiential storytelling potential of immersive technologies, the UN SDG Action Campaign, Digital Promise, and Oculus invite emerging and first-time media creators worldwide to join the global MY World 360˚ campaign to inspire positive action toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals. From reducing inequalities, to promoting good health and well-being, to ensuring access to affordable and clean energy, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to create a better world.
Since 2018, MY World 360˚ creators have produced hundreds of media projects that use immersive storytelling and design to inspire action on the Goals. From dramatic enactments of gender discrimination to public service announcement about food deserts and access to healthy food, MY World 360˚ participants shine a spotlight on issues most relevant to young people and their communities.
In 2020, MY World 360˚ invites emerging and first-time media creators everywhere to use Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), 360˚ and other emerging forms of interactive storytelling and design to show the multi-dimensionality of their communities and creative visions for a better world.
The world of immersive storytelling and design is wide open for experimentation and innovation. Submissions may include (but are not limited to):
Educators and adults working with students under age 18 are welcome to share their students’ media. Creators ages 18 and older are welcome to submit their original work directly. Submissions can be in any language.
Submission deadline: February 25, 2020 for priority consideration to be screened at the Global Festival of Action in Bonn, Germany in April 2020.
