The places we live: A Virtual Reality Hackathon for Sustainable Urban Development

From 12-14 August, 2016, I brought the first virtual reality hackathon on urban sustainability to Australia.

50 scientists, storytellers and developers met in Melbourne to explore how virtual reality can help connect people with the places we live.

Teams created virtual reality concepts and prototypes in response to 9 urban sustainability challenges submitted by organisations. The winning concepts and prototypes were showcased to thousands of people in October 2016 at HABITAT III, the UN’s major conference on housing and sustainable urban development.
