New innovations like '360 degree videos' allow us to not just be passive observers of a scene but look around and interact with characters as if we were really there! These engaging experiences can help us build a greater connection with and empathy for all sorts of different people and places.
Virtual Inclusion is an interactive feature that offers you the chance to experience a 'day in the life' of three different young people facing discrimination and learn how you can promote social inclusion in your own life!
Immerse yourself in the virtual scenarios
Select the image below to launch the world of Virtual Inclusion. If you are viewing this on a desktop PC, you will need to move your mouse around to experience the full 360 degree view. You can choose between three different characters each facing social discrimination in their lives. At the end of each, there will be a choice for you to make as to how to respond to this discrimination either as a viewer or the character.
Get the App
This is the web-based version of our virtual inclusion app, which is currently available free to download on both Google Play and Apple Store. The app will allow you to experience these scenarios both in 3D "Virtual Reality" mode and 2D "Classic" mode on your mobile or tablet. These can be viewed using a VR headset or as a finger controlled interactive 360 video.
Now you've experienced the scenarios first hand, please answer the following question about yourself and your experience.
Take it further
If you are an educator please download our Digital Toolkit for using this in the classroom!
