#MyClimateReality, created in collaboration with a host of frontline Climate Activists from Mock COP, and produced with Picture Zero and SOS, tells groundbreaking VR stories of youth activists from around the world being affected by the Climate Crisis right now, and how they are actively resisting on the ground.
We worked with young activists from across five different countries to tell their stories of climate change. In their own words, they told us their determination for climate justice and demonstrated the incredible leadership they are showing in the face of the climate crisis.
Their passion and bravery was shown to audiences at COP26 in the green and blue zones. The audience were immersed as they were transported around the world to come face-to-face and listen with these remarkable activists.
Not at COP? The films are available for online in 360 immersive video below*:
