Description

Extended Realities - Creating Visceral Experiences for Sustainability


Immersive technologies, which allow for extending reality, provide researchers and educators with the means to design experiences that afford changing perspectives, experience the invisible, the past, or the future. We are just at the beginning to understand the role that immersive technologies can play in understanding environmental change, how they facilitate system thinking, and ultimately ground both decision-making and understanding of sustainability-related issues in embodied, visceral experiences. The talk will provide an overview of research facilitated through Penn State's Center for Immersive Experiences showcasing projects addressing the communication of climate change, energy, and environmental decision-making.

_______

The CSL will be hosting twelve Sustainability Showcases this fall to make connections between faculty research, personal and professional interest and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while broadening the discourse surrounding sustainability. Speakers are invited to give a thirty-minute talk, answer questions and hang around to mingle with attendees.

This year, the theme for the showcase series is: The Time is Now.

Events are on Fridays 12 - 1:30 pm, are held in 233AB HUB and include lunch for RSVP'd guests.
