Where Art, Technology and Science Collide for Sustainability and Social Impact

Karen will discuss some of the ways BOM in Birmingham are using immersive to highlight environmental issues and engage under-represented communities. Projects include Mother Nature – an XR experience and mobile game drawing on live environmental data to stimulate climate action through game play (currently in development); and the technology-enabled Queen’s Baton BOM created for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, which gathered air quality data and 360 video across its global tour.
