2402 Foundation invites you to take part in a security workshop using VR

On May 23, at the IPI World Congress in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), the founders of the 2402 Foundation, Kateryna Sergatskova and Roman Stepanovych, will hold a workshop on risk assessment using VR technologies

The trainers will share their experience in conducting a risk assessment training using the VR module from Head Set Immersive and skills in focusing on the threats, risks and security situations faced by journalists working with controversial topics and sensitive content in a hostile environment.

"The workshop and its participants will become a direct part of the networking to share experiences, find new solutions and critically analyze the role of the media in solving the great crises of our time", — Roman Stepanovych.

"We strive to minimize the risk of confusion, loss of control, feelings of helplessness or defenselessness in a critical situation. Thanks to VR training, journalists will gain the necessary experience to make quick and ethical decisions. This is vital for the safety of media workers" — Kateryna Sergatskova
