  1. VR makes education for everyone about everything, that there are no limits to what you can learn or be a part of.
  2. It allows people to explore the unexplorable, to break down barriers and offer new freedoms to those who were once unable to take part.
  3. That wearing a VR headset encourages a deeper sense of empathy and care, once you’ve ‘walked in someone else’s shoes’ or seen what life is like for animal and creatures you’re more likely to take note.
