Short thesis: 

What are the benefits of using new technologies in our activism? How can virtual reality be used in campaigning and to which effect? Which techniques are more effective than others in advocating social causes? The presentation aims to answer those and similar questions, and to provide insights into the methodology of the work behind the organization Animal Equality.


Animal Equality has developed a virtual reality experience called "iAnimal" in which the viewer is transported inside factory farms and slaughterhouses. It allows the viewer to access the day-to-day abuses that are hidden from the public by the agricultural industry.
