Aussie raised wearable journalist and climate activist, Yusuf Omar, is set to launch a new docuseries Snap Original, First Person today.

Omar reimagines the documentary format using Snapchat Spectacles worn by extraordinary young innovators and sees each episode highlight how they are creating positive change, as they fight to protect our planet in unique ways.

The partnership will launch three episodes here in Australia, focussing on topics including how food waste emits more global emissions than any other product, how 3D printing waste plastic could change the world and how robots could save the Great Barrier Reef.

It’s pretty cool stuff.

Other episodes will showcase African countries with the likes of Rhino Wars, which explores stopping poachers in South Africa; Hero Rats, which uncovers the mighty rodent taskforce that sniff out landmines in Tanzania; and Plastic Hair, which unravels the fascinating practice of making wigs out of plants instead of plastic in Kenya.
