The crown Prince of Dubai invited to the world government summit social VR projects that impressed him in Davos.
The world government summit opened in Dubai on February 10. World leaders and representatives of civil society once again gathered in the Emirate to discuss a number of issues, including those related to climate change and military conflicts.
Two activist Milica Zeke and Winslow porter will perform in the protection of the environment and the world with their projects in virtual reality "Tree" and "Giant". They will allow viewers to feel like a tree in the rainforests of the Amazon and a participant in the hostilities, trapped.
The Tree project premiered at the recent world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland, attended by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, crown Prince of Dubai. According to Zek and porter, Sheikh Hamdan familiarized himself with the project and invited its authors to take part in the Dubai summit.
"Our goal is to present a personal approach to the problem of climate change. Through experience in virtual reality, you will learn what it's like to be a tree, and you will witness what people do to nature - so you can perceive this problem as your own" - said one of the authors of the project - "We appeal to the hearts of the audience [...] We don't just want them to learn more about climate change, we want them to feel it."
