MY World 360° Program Guide

[MY World 360° Program Guide available for download in English, German, Portuguese, and Spanish].

MY World 360°, a partnership between the United Nations SDG Action Campaign, Digital Promise Global, and Oculus, invites young people (ages 5-24) worldwide to create immersive stories to share their perspectives and advance positive action toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

360° film and photography capture every direction at once — up, down, and all around. Producing 360° media presents many new challenges and opportunities.

By participating in MY World 360°, young people have an opportunity to learn creative and technical skills, communicate their ideas, and make an impact on issues they care about.

Step 5: Share your message

Launch an Action Campaign – You’ve created your MY World 360° media, but you’re not done yet! For your media to make an impact, it’s important to share it in a way that will get the result you want. This means creating an action campaign and thinking about:

Remember the audience that you want your media to reach. If you already have access to them, they are an “input” or “resource.” If you don’t yet have access to them, what actions can you take that might get your media in front of them? Your Action Plan might look like this:

Create a Viewing Guide and Resources

Viewing Guide – Create a viewing guide and other resources to accompany your media. For example, 1-2 page flyer or poster to accompany your MY World 360° media could include:

Behind-the-Scenes Storytelling – Did you take photos or video footage while creating your media? Create a “making of” video or blog post. 360° is a new media format and stories are a great way to reach viewers who could be motivated to view your 360° media.

How-To Guides – Did you learn new skills while making your media? Help others by sharing your expertise in the form of a screencast or how-to guide to reinforce the skills you just learned.

Host a Local Showcase – You’ve worked hard on your 360° media project! Take time to celebrate your work. Below are some tips for creating a local exhibition or festival to share it.

Thank you for being part of MY World 360° and inspiring action towards a better world for all – we can’t wait to see what you create next!
