I've been thinking about the aim of this forum as set out by David in the Welcome post.
As an educator I am quite familar with the SDGs and have looked at different ways to approach/tackle them with students. I definitely feel that there is an opportunity to raise awareness of them using VR.
Whilst thinking about potential links between the SDGs and existing VR experiences/apps available on the Vive, I started thinking - what would be powerful would be an actual Sustainable Development Goals app!
Imagine: a menu loads looking like the SDG graphic then the user clicks on any of the 17 tiles to launch a short VR experience to highlight the importance/relevance of that goal. This could be a VR film, an empathatic experience where you step into someone else's shoes, a short virtual lesson etc etc
What do you all think?

I think that's a great idea - would make the SDGs a little bit more tangible!
Just thinking of what we would need to make this happen - probably should be an initiative by the UN or UNVR themselves?
