STORIES OF THE FUTURE 2030 @ NYC

New York City

XR TECHNOLOGIES x CLIMATe action

We'll select up to 50 participants amongst all the applicants!

September 13th & 14th, we are going to bring together a group of Filmmakers, Storytellers and Developers to generate visionary ideas and build prototypes with XR technologies to raise awareness and promote positive changes to accelerate climate action. 

After a series of keynote speakers, participants will work in teams to reflect, ideate and create conceptual prototypes of their ideas with the help of XR experts. The aim of the event is to create new synergies amongst the XR community, welcome new adopters and generate valuable proposals with the potential to raise awareness and promote positive changes to accelerate climate action. 

The winning team will be selected to exhibit their project at House of Solutions on Governor's Island during "NYC Climate Change Week" September 21st and the NYC Media Lab Summit September 26th.
