Are you looking for a global project to get your learners doing something positive towards tacking the Sustainable Development Goals?
Do you want to showcase your community and its challenges and solutions on a global stage?
Do you want your learners to make exciting media – but only have access to a Smartphone?
MY World 360° invites youth (ages 5-24) worldwide to create 360° media to share their perspectives and advance positive action toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The aim of MY World 360° is to share the stories of the people behind the SDGs including those whose lives are most affected and those who are taking action to make their success a reality.
How can you get started?
Start by exploring the Sustainable Development Goals and how they are relevant to you and your community. Have conversations with people in your community to discover what issues are important to them. The MY World survey can be used as a tool to start the conversation and ask yourself and the people around you what stories need to be told.
What format should be used?
You’ll need to learn a bit about 360° media, a format that captures in every direction at once — up, down, and all around. To participate all you need is a Smartphone. Download a free 360° photo tool like the Google Street View app and get started. Check out these 360° media examples for ideas and inspiration.
What story should you and your learners tell?
Your story should relate to the SDGs and the ideas discussed with your community.
How do I share my work?
Share your 360° work on social media using the hashtags #MYWorld360 and #SDGs. You can also submit your media to MY World 360° by 5 June for July events and by 15 August for September events.
