A unique event at the cutting edge of storytelling, science and technology during COP21
Organised jointly by the International Council for Science and the Future Earth Media Lab, the hackathon's purpose is to bring together some of the most creative people on the occasion of COP21 to brainstorm, create, plan and storyboard highly engaging Virtual Reality experiences of life in the Anthropocene and our personal and collective impact on global systems, including the climate.
This hackathon is part of a series of VR events being seeded by the Future Earth Media Lab around the world to build a community that is passionate about developing scientific content for virtual reality applications.
The first one was held in Stockholm, Sweden in October. Participants will be given the opportunity to use and experience the latest VR technology, they will receive deep immersion in Earth systems science, resilience thinking, planetary boundaries and the Anthropocene from leading scientists attending the climate talks.
We are looking for participants with strong skills in one or more of the below fields: virtual reality design, climate science, Earth system science, filmmaking, storytelling, storyboarding and graphic design.
We will draw on this unique pool of talent to generate new ideas and form new networks that can draw on the power of VR technology to develop empathy around the profound transformation our blue planet is undergoing.
