MY World 360°
Recognizing the experiential storytelling potential of immersive technologies like virtual reality, Digital Promise Global, the United Nations SDG Action Campaign, and Oculus have launched MY World 360°, supporting youth worldwide to create 360° media as a way to share their perspectives and advance positive action toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The program aims to drive youth engagement and agency, improve youth understanding about global issues impacting communities around the world, build young people’s technical production skills with new media, and spur public awareness and action.
MY World 360° includes a Program Guide and FAQ to help participants learn about the SDGs, and to develop the skills needed to capture, edit, and share 360° media to represent their perspectives and their communities in an immersive and compelling way.
Sign up below to receive updates, resources, and information on how to participate in the MY World 360° Global Challenge.
Submit your 360° media via the MY World 360° Submission Form by August 15th, 2019 to be considered for upcoming United Nations showcase opportunities.

About the United Nations SDG Action Campaign
The United Nations SDG Action Campaign empowers and inspires people across the world to take action in supporting their governments, building multi-stakeholder partnerships and leveraging cutting-edge communication technologies to bridge the gap and ensure a transparent dialogue between world leaders and their constituencies, especially the most marginalized and vulnerable populations. From 2013 to 2015, the MY World 2015 project ensured that ten million people’s development priorities were included in the deliberation process for the SDGs, an effort which will continue to include people through 2030. Since 2015, the Campaign has coordinated the United Nations Virtual Reality Project, using the power of immersive storytelling to inspire viewers towards increased empathy, action and positive social change.
