Our Mock COP26 campaign brought young delegates to make a global declaration to decision-makers with 18 ambitious policies. Following on we want to create a series of immersive short-form content experiences, designed specifically to amplify the need for climate justice to be exhibited at COP26.
Governments around the world are failing to meet their legal and moral obligations to tackle the climate and ecological crisis, despite the increasing urgency and projected scale of the crisis. Young people will be the ones who will be living through the impact of this in future years. We want to make sure that youth voices are at the heart of COP26 with policy makers taking their concerns, proposals and solutions into account when making decisions.
We have a contingency plan in case COP26 is either conducted online or postponed. Having conducted an entirely virtual Mock COP26 main event last year, we have developed a substantial online presence, including several high-profile influencers, which we would utilise to move My Climate Reality online. We would adapt our plans from a static VR exhibition in the conference centre to showcasing snippets of students in hostile climates across our online platforms, and running engagement events online hosted by the youth in our short films. Additionally, we would look to make use of Google Cardboard style VR viewers.
