Virtual Reality report: how climate change is affecting Europe now

In the north, reindeer are starving. In the south, nature reserves are turning into deserts. This isn’t a dystopian future but the reality of the present. All over Europe climate change is forcing humans and animals to adapt or abandon their homes.

To understand what all the politicians’ speeches and news reports actually mean when they talk about climate change, Euronews invites you to travel the length and breadth of Europe in this virtual reality experience. What is happening and what is being done to prevent the worst consequences?

Inside the experience, you can watch seven different reports, either with a VR headset or through your normal browser on computer, tablet or phone.

You can choose your destinations by looking at the icons on the map or by hovering the round cursor on them.

On a desktop browser, you can enter full screen mode by clicking on the glasses.
