WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Humanity360 brings greater global social awareness into high school classrooms through the use of interactive media (incl. VR - virtual reality, video, and more), mindfulness and social engagement practices.
Our mission to broaden students’ perspectives about the lives of others around the globe, shed light on socio-economic and globally pressing issues that pertain to aspects of our shared humanity, and channel heartfelt responses and resolve of youths into meaningful action.
HOW DO WE EXPERIENCE COMMON HUMANITY?
Getting to know ourselves more fully by getting to know the lives of others
Humanity360 provides a platform to bring cultural anthropology and social awareness into classrooms using virtual reality experiences and empathic intelligence exercises.
Designed as a 10-week learning program, H360’s first module focuses on socio economic and globally pressing issues. Developed by cultural anthropologists in conjunction with organizations such as Amnesty International, Humanity360 is designed for students from ages 13 to 16 to introduce them to new topics each week, through the eyes of an individual in a different part of the world who faces the daily challenges of their particular situation.
Students learn through VR experiences and can engage with ideas in new ways. Each program is designed to foster empathy and encourage action.
