LOCAL LEADER TALKS
XR TECH, CLIMATE ACTION & SUSTAINABILITY
This global series aims to create momentum and break down silos between climate activists, government, technologists and the creative community. It explores the power of technology to discover unexpected ideas that are unique to each XR medium, while bringing together the brightest minds to actively architect a new future and explore how emerging technologies such as AR, MR, VR, and AI can foster climate action, and help the transition to greener, more sustainable cities.
3 days of conversation, innovation and co-creation
TALKS WITH LOCAL LEADERS
Open to the general public, local leaders provide an orientation to global and local trends, challenges and opportunities.
Saturday & Sunday
Following an application process, we select the best technologists and creatives to work together. Participants participate in design thinking acceleration exercises, access cutting-edge tech demos, and receive master classes on prototyping and pitching. On Sunday, the resulting projects of the Creathon will be pitched to a jury of local experts who will select the winners.
An exhibition space is open to the public, showcasing innovative projects and prototypes from other creators, creations and collaborators to serve as inspiration to the community.
"We have the responsibility to create our future. This is not about sitting back and just by default letting the future happen. This is about a future by design and by intent, by collective intent perhaps even more importantly”
