Greek refugee camp fires flag urgent reality learning VR at LearnX

The wild fires in the Greek islands threatening thousands of displaced refugees highlights the need for meaningful learning about working and living with forced displacement.

The 2020 program, Working with Displaced Persons, created from filming in a refugee camp in Athens, teaches innovative new ways that displaced people around the world are being assisted and integrated into host communities. Pivotal in this program is the Virtual Reality documentary,  Night Becomes Day.

VR delivers rapid understanding and training to speed refugee processing and assist professionals in working with displaced persons.

The highly customised content demonstrates the criticality of technology-enhanced learning in emergency conditions.

“VR does an excellent job at bringing you into the challenge. And the challenge (of displaced persons) is vast and it’s common.” Deputy Director of HumanRights360 Eleni Takou.

All this was made possible through the extraordinary collaboration between leading NGOs Reality Learning, the World Federation of Occupational Therapists and HumanRights360.
