It's a huge honor to have been selected to present "The Planetary Boundaries", a VR environment documentary based on Sustainability Science. The project's premiere will be part of the technological showcase of the G7 event in Quebec City.
The Virtual Reality (VR) production Planetary Boundaries - the VR experience (PBVR) is a groundbreaking exploration of the use of VR technology to communicate sustainability science. The experience is based on the Planetary Boundaries research, a leading framework in sustainability science, originally developed by Professor Johan Rockström at Stockholm Resilience Centre together with an international team of researchers. The nine Planetary Boundaries is a quantification of how much pressure we can put on Earth’s biogeochemical flows before they change to the point they become unable to support civilizations as we know them.
The PBVR project originated from an idea at Stockholm Resilience Centre, and the idea has now been translated to VR in a collaboration with ALTKEY Studio, the leading VR experts. PBVR presents strong visual material and immersive environments that translate the highly complex science into an experience that is advanced enough to inform experts, yet accessible to a global audience of mixed professional backgrounds. This is the first time this version of the experience will be shown.
We have partnered with different experts to bring this project to the next level. Globaia shared with us impressive planet Earth's visualizations that we ingrated to the experience. There's also Peak Media who worked on the experience's ambiant sounds and music adding this immersive space-like feeling.
Up: Biodiversity boundary: studies show that wildlife abundance decreased by 58 per cent between 1970 and 2012.
Down: Climate change through the years.
The official launching is planned for the end of the year. The experience will be available on the Oculus Store and other VR platforms.
