somebodyelse 2021

formation
Behavioural change, Communication, Media, Education or Games [ Games ] Gamification
Somebodyelse creates embodied experiences in VR to help people to understand an issue in an immersive, educational and playful way to raise awareness and enable positive behavioural change. In 2015, the United Nations all agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which are part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. But social, cultural, and environmental problems still seem to be accumulating worldwide; sustainable cities and communities, access to health and therapy, or social wellbeing are still huge problems to tackle. People are still not sufficiently aware of the underlying problems, cannot understand, imagine, or relate to them, and therefore, will not change them either. Digital technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR) allow a wide range of people to experience abstract content appealingly. And, today we know that people can better understand and emphasize through a self-made bodily experience.

formation
Energy usage, efficiency & prosumption [ Energy Production, Energy sufficiency ] Photovoltaics, Renewable technologies, Solarthermal energy
Solar energy is a strong catalyst to fight poverty. We provide a modular, compact and solar energy center to NGOs working with off-grid communities in South-East Africa. The center can provide light and mobile charging for the communities. It can be expanded over time, thus bringing new energy services according to the demand of the users (ex. wi-fi, fridge, printing, etc.). On the one hand, the center generates revenues, which makes it financially self-sustainable. On the other hand, the energy services provided to the communities allow them to lower their energy costs, while being less polluting, more efficient and healthier than current solutions they use. At sun’n’go, we strongly believe that no one should be left behind and that we can empower the bottom of the pyramid thanks to sustainable energy in order to reduce inequalities.
