Virtually Amazing tools
As a well known and visible international actor on climate change, virtual engagement became increasingly important for the Climate Centre during the pandemic.
While we want to infuse our vision of enhanced learning and dialogue through interactive approaches in
physical events, we also seek to promote efforts to reduce carbon emissions, and the necessary
behaviour change to achieve this.
Recognising the increased need for online engagement, the Climate Centre aimed to become a champion of effective virtual engagements, and with the IFRC our Virtually Amazing manifesto was launched in April 2020.
Can we accomplish the same impact in addressing global challenges when people cannot converge in space and time? Can we design and facilitate events that enable meaningful participation at a distance, reducing health risks and costs while taking advantage of all the possibilities offered by digital technologies?
Yes, we can. It is time to become Virtually Amazing.
