As a partner of MIT’s EmTech Next Conference—whose theme was unlocking resilience in the workplace—Mesmerise debuted The Forest of Resilience: an immersive experience that situates participants in a nature-themed virtual environment, and which encourages them to identify and build their innate resilience.

Attendees who went through the experience of getting in touch with their own strength and resilience were visibly moved. ​“This is phenomenal,” remarked one participant.​

Each person who participated in the Forest of Resilience received a package of seeds to plant to serve as a reminder of their resilience and growth, extending the experience and bridging the virtual world with the physical world.
