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 Goals. Everyone is invited to join millions of people everywhere to #TurnItAround #ForPeopleForPlanet. MY World 360º is calling for immersive experiences that take viewers - decision makers, individuals, business leaders, students across the world - on a journey across the two sides of this Turning Point. Selected media will be showcased at the SDG Global Festival of Action.
About MY World 360º
Since 2018, MY World 360˚ creators around the world have used immersive storytelling to share what is going on in their communities and to inspire action on the Sustainable Development Goals, a global call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
From climate action reporting to stories of local innovation and resilience, participants shine a spotlight on issues most relevant to them and their communities, by using new and emerging multimedia formats. Since launching in March 2018, MY World 360º has screened 19 immersive stories at UN events around the world.
