Immersive Storytelling for Environmental Communication
Virtual Reality and the Species Divide: Immersive Storytelling for Environmental Communication
Despite increased media coverage and awareness of environmental threats, persuading individuals to take actions to mitigate those threats remains a challenge, in part because these threats are not always “in our own backyards.” Immersive media platforms, such as virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), are promising storytelling vehicles granting us the ability to connect in meaningful ways with nature and the plight of wildlife, placing audiences face-to-face with the issues, and creating a true sense of “being there” and “being with”.

In this talk, Daniel Pimentel and Nina Adanin discuss the role of immersive storytelling in driving pro-environmental change, highlighting various projects that use VR/AR to take audiences from atop tropical glaciers to deep beneath the ocean alongside sea turtles.
