Such an approach to preparing for survival in dangerous conditions minimizes the risk that, having found himself in a critical situation in real life, a person will be confused, will not be able to control himself, and will be completely defenseless and helpless in the face of a mortal threat. The 2402 Foundation trainings focus on the development of emotional and mental resilience. VR technologies enable data-based insights into individual strengths and weaknesses, including situational awareness, decision-making, and self-control under pressure.
The first 40 participants already had the opportunity to get a unique shared life experience and see the effectiveness of such training. In July 2023, the 2402 Foundation and Headset Immersive
and VICE Media
held the first interactive VR training
for Ukrainian journalists in Lviv. The innovativeness of the solutions, the experience and professionalism of the trainers, the strong program, and the detailed organization of the training set a new bar in preparing journalists for work in war conditions in Ukraine and beyond.
