News / Pollinator Park inspires high school students on World Environment Day
On the occasion of World Environment Day, Europe House in Podgorica organised an interactive promotion of Pollinator Park, the wonderful world of pollinating insects in virtual reality. Europe House hosted students attending Ivan Uskoković Secondary Vocational School and Vaso Aligrudić Electrical Engineering School from Podgorica, who had the opportunity to try out the Oculus VR headset for the first time and “walk” through the virtual world of pollinating insects. The high school students talked enthusiastically about this unique experience after visiting Miro’s Meadow, the City Lab and the Canteen, which are part of Pollinator Park.
A combination of a zoo, a theme park, an interactive museum and a crystal ball, Pollinator Park takes visitors to the year 2050, showing what the future would hold if pollinators became extinct. A web version is also available.
The European Commission created Pollinator Park last year in order to raise awareness and mobilise society to protect pollinators. This publicly-available tool is available to museums, schools and other institutions, stakeholders and partners in Europe and beyond. It supports the communication and educational activities on the environmental and climate crisis in this decade, which are crucial for action to save our planet.
