Ricoh and Kopernik to expand 360-degree video focusing on social issues through collaboration with UN Volunteers in the field

Supporting the generation of ideas for resolving issues

TOKYO, April 21, 2021 – Ricoh and Kopernik Japan have been collaborating on a global campaign using RICOH THETA (hereinafter “THETA”), a 360-degree camera, to showcase examples of challenges to advance achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With the addition of the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) as a partner, the three together will expand Kopernik’s “VR for SDGs” campaign that conveys the impact of social issues in the field.

For the first campaign in January 2021 between Ricoh and Kopernik, THETA cameras were used to capture 360-degree videos showing the environmental pollution and challenges to access safe and clean energy faced by people in Indonesia in order to increase awareness of these social issues.

The second phase of this project will start on April 21, 2021. It will involve UN volunteers in the field around the world to develop 360-degree content focusing on social issues related to the SDGs. Ten UN volunteers will be selected from among the applicants, and Ricoh will provide THETA cameras, and Kopernikwill provide basic training on videography and storytelling. The 360-degree video content will be posted on the “VR for SDGs” platform* built by Kopernik and will be used in communicating the issues to the general public, research activities by companies working with Kopernik, as well as universities. In addition, Kopernik will highlight the videos at online events to deepen the understanding of social issues and SDGs and create broad opportunities for collaboration on resolving them.

Ricoh and Kopernik will continue to add content that captures social issues in 360-degree video format. By making them available to as broad an audience as possible, we will contribute to fostering understanding of social issues and the creation of ideas to resolve them.

*VR for SDGs:A free and open-source platform administered by Kopernik that showcases challenges related to the SDGs in collaboration with public and private sector partners. The platform aims to promote further understanding of the real challenges related to the SDGs on the ground and support the development and deployment of appropriate solutions to accelerate the achievement of the SDGs. http://vr4sdgs.org/

Outline of the collaborative efforts
- Ricoh will provide ten RICOH THETA SC2 units.
- Ricoh and Kopernik will provide training and other support for UNV’s.
- Publish the contest winners’ videos on the “VR for SDGs” platform
- An online event to be held to teach how to use the 360-degree video in corporate and educational settings
