Due to Corona, the Waterkant Festival reacted with a session of live-streamings instead of talks on-spot. We are happy and thankful that we were approached to talk about virtual reality as a tool to evoke empathy for the ocean.
Waterkant is probably the first und freshest startup Festival in northern Germany. This unconventional event shakes up a rich mix of startups, companies, creators, intrapreneurs mentors, investors, and students. Every year, the Waterkant in Kiel creates a great event where people gather, network, learn and have fun.
Even in 2020, with Corona as a limiting factor, they still managed to create a colourful event, though not as big as usual. However, what did not happen in reality this year, they moved into the digital world, opening a wide range of interesting talks to an international audience.
An important focus of the Waterkant festival are technology and sustainability - and water. This was just the perfect fit for Cyan Planet, and we were happy to give a talk about our VR mission to evoke empathy for our ocean.
