​Virtual Reality for Civic Deliberation
Imagine if we could walk around on the new Wellington Airport runway extension before deciding if it is a good idea for the City Council to fund it.
With Virtual Reality (VR), we can enter into an architect’s vision and interact with it in real time, making it enjoyable to participate — like watching and acting in a 3D IMAX movie.
In this "bleeding edge" session, Audrey will share the state of virtual reality (VR) for citizen engagement.

Join us to discuss how we can use The overview effect (participants becoming more attuned to each other and to the environment) to increase the quality of our deliberations.
