UN & The ‘Ashden Awards’


VR & AR Location based content


Project Brief

Surround Vision original concept.

Project Overview

The ‘Ashden Awards’ celebrate environmental solutions that are helping combat climate change. This years winner was Colombia’s city of Medellín, whose mayor has introduced ‘Green Corridors’ to combat rising street temperatures.

Project Delivery

This VR film is part of our wider ‘Climate Changers’ series; and follows the ‘Garden Guardians’ who have helped transform the city in just two years, tackling the urban heat island effect, increasing biodiversity and cutting air pollution along 18 roads and 12 waterways.

The film mixes photogrammetry, CGI and 360º video, with motion graphics & animation that allow audiences to step into the Medellin story.

Results/ Awards / Client testimonials

Surround Vision worked alongside the Ashden Awards to create the film which was showcased at New York Climate week and is now being used by the UN’s environmental programme as part of their ‘cooling pavilion’ at COP 25 in Chile and bigger plans for the COP 26 in Glasgow.
