Our work has been widely used in education around the world including schools and universities and also less formal settings such as museums and a zoo. Our images have also been used by Al Gore and the UK Government’s Chief Scientist, in public programmes and for specialists in automotive and other sectors.
We created this animated film to illustrate the carbon footprint of Plymouth University using the campus itself for scale and shows a ‘success’ story’ where emissions have been reduced. A version was also created for the university's full-dome theatre. The purpose of the video was to engage otherwise uninterested students, academics and staff, get them to realise that carbon emissions are real and show that the university is endeavouring to achieve measurable reductions. The intention is then to invite them to explore more detail through web-based energy and carbon dashboard.
We built a prototype interactive web-tool for the University of Exeter to raise awareness of energy use and carbon emissions of all 120 buildings on the two campuses. We also created a short attention-grabbing animation that could be shared on social media.
Now students and staff at the University of the West of England (UWE) can see the real-time, monthly and annual carbon emissions associated with every building on the different campuses in and around Bristol. Our prototype has been improved to give faster and smoother operation and also allow viewing on smart phones, tablets and full-sized screens.
Real World Visuals is now re-working this prototype into a fully functioning campus engagement tool that we can provide for any university.
