The Living Coast Undersea Experience - Call for Volunteers
What is The Living Coast Undersea Experience? An interactive, virtual reality & 360o experience enabling users explore the underwater environment of the Beachy Head West Marine Conservation Zone (between Brighton Marina and Beachy Head). The Experience aims to open up the MCZ to everyone; raise awareness of its unique chalk reef and the species living there; and be a powerful educational tool to help people understand the environment and the things we can all do to conserve it.

We are looking for volunteers to help us deliver the experience in community settings & schools across Sussex. You will help with:
• Welcoming visitors, signing in/taking tickets
• Giving information about the project & Marine Conservation Zone
• Engaging visitors in the accompanying games & activities
•Helping people into headsets & managing their experience, including the opportunity to learn to set up the VR equipment
•Collecting feedback & evaluation
There are no set skills required just a passion and enthusiasm to engage people in conservation and environmental issues.
1) Learn about Marine Conservation in the local area.
2) Learn about VR technology
3) Learn skills in community engagement
The venues can be located across the south east so there will be a necessity to travel. Where possible you will be travelling with the team from Brighton.
When do I need to be available?
