Refugee Stories

PrintPrint

This week we will be sharing out some 360° videos that depict life in a refugee camps. These videos can just be viewed "as is" on your computer or mobile device. You can get a sense of the 360° aspect by clicking on the video and dragging your mouse in any direction. However, for a truly immersive experience, they can be viewed using a device such as Google cardboard, which allows you to fully immerse yourself in the 360° filming.

We encourage you to regularly take some time to connect with these stories. We will continue to highlight, over the next couple of weeks, stories about some of the real people behind the big data.
