TURN IT AROUND FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET
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. Everyone is invited to join millions of people everywhere to #TurnItAround #ForPeopleForPlanet. MY World 360º is calling for immersive experiences that take viewers on a journey across the two sides of this Turning Point. Selected media will be showcased at the SDG Global Festival of Action.
IMMERSIVE STORIES INSPIRING PEOPLE EVERYWHERE TO TAKE ACTION
MY World 360º invites immersive creators - media pros and first time creators alike - to create media that allows us to experience a world turned around - a new reimagined world in which the SDGs are a reality- and that inspires people everywhere to take part in the bold and transformative action needed to solve the issues we face.
Since its launch in 2018, MY World 360º annual selections have screened and inspired people across the world at the UN General Assembly, UN SDG Global Festival of Action, film festivals, schools and community events and cultural institutions.
MY World 360º is a collaboration among Digital Promise, Oculus from Facebook, and the UN SDG Action Campaign.
JOIN THE COMMUNITY OF CONTENT CREATORS
New MY World 360º creators join every year a growing community of talented and engaged creators and storytellers that spans across world regions, language and backgrounds.
Through the online platform, participants get access to digital resources and a virtual community to help them through the creative and production process. The selected projects will be shown in digital platforms and made available for educators, film festivals and individuals alongside screening guides for those who want to improve their understanding about global issues and the solutions and approaches to tackle them.

50% of Argentina’s population may lack adequate housing. Lack of View represents how society only sees what it wants and looks away from homelessness.
