So könnte es aussehen, wenn man sich virtuell in einer sich klimatisch verändernden Lebenswirklichkeit orientieren muss.

The Klima-ACT!  project, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, investigates the potential of immersive and multi-user-capable technologies to motivate users to act in a more climate-friendly way by enabling them to experience man-made climate change and its impending future scenarios. Climate change becomes a (virtual) reality for users in a playful way. Within a virtual space, people meet on the basis of what they have experienced, thus creating a platform for enhanced discussion between the public, academia and climate protection actors.

As part of the kick-off event, the project partners from climate research, games development, multi-user technologies and design resarch will present the details of the project to interested members of the public.
