2 min readJun 1, 2021

We are at a turning point for people and our planet — and if we act collectively, we can accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. MY World 360º is calling for immersive experiences — augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 360° video and photography, to 3D design that take viewers anywhere in the world on a journey across the two sides of this Turning Point.

Creators of any background, country, age and language are invited to submit media by August 5, 2021 to be showcased during the Global Week to ACT4SDGs in September.

Creating media that inspires action

Creators are invited to use whatever tools are available in their location to create media, from augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 360° video and photography, to 3D design to show the multi-dimensionality of their local communities and creative visions for a better world. Youth and first-time creators are strongly encouraged to apply.

Selected media will provoke viewers and users to feel the urgency to take action on inequalities, gender and climate to create a more peaceful, just and inclusive world and make this a turning point for people and the planet.
