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.
The following topics will be presented:
Human Rights - Definitions, Violations and Advocacy
Urban Poverty and Social Inequality
Food Democracy and Seed Preservation
Homelessness and Protection
Eldercare and The Generational Contract
Indigenous Life and Modernization
Climate Adaptation and Migration
Gender Identity and Social Acceptance
Wildlife and Habitat Protection
Nature and Technology
In the future, we will be launching additional modules focussing on different aspects of cultural anthropology, e.g.:
Food Markets/Sources and Diets Around the World
Religious Beliefs and Identity
Faces of America
Architecture and Dwellings
Historic Sites and their Cultural Significance
