In the year 2180,
the world is experiencing 4°C warming. New York, Moscow, Johannesburg, wellington and many more encounter unprecedented conditions in their cities.
Climate change unquestionably represents the biggest challenge to the continued presence of humankind — or any other species — on this planet. We don’t lack solutions to climate change. We lack political and collective will. People who are inventing and thinking of solutions are sometimes disconnected, working in different fields in different countries. 2100: A Dystopian Utopia in VR will bring scattered, environmentally conscious individuals together into a centralized space where they can engage with each other and those wanting to learn and take action. Our vision for 2100 VR is one of ongoing expansion, community building, and a trove of real-world applications, becoming a gathering place for eco-aware people.
