ZHdK presents «Expedition 2 Degree», providing the public with a tangible and emotional VR-based experience on the impact of climate change. The alpine environment is simulated using the example of the Aletsch Glacier over the last 200 years and in the future in order to let the audience experience scenarios of a world beyond the global 2°C target. By way of immersing into a scientifically modelled environment, visitors can emotionally comprehend the possible consequences. Through the direct interaction with the scenario it is shown that each person can contribute to this important topic by changing behavior and by generating ideas for activism. The audience will learn that a joint effort is needed to slow down climate change.

The project is supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Research partners: University of Fribourg, University of Teacher Education Grisons, Foundation Swiss National Park, World Nature Forum, UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau.
