DAY 5 – DECEMBER 15
Policy, Trust, and Governance
The state-of-the-art Metaverse Governance and Policy
The world is facing the unprecedented challenge of building responsible, safe, and inclusive XR and Metaverse-related ecosystems. We need an intervention for pragmatic policy decision-making and governance to help build responsibility, safety, and inclusion for the convergence and threats we are confronting. Together with high-ranking EU/US/UN public officials, government representatives, international business and technology executives, lawmakers, community leaders, civic organizations, big tech organizations, and global citizens, we will explore how to leverage the potential of the Metaverse while ensuring consumer protection, privacy, human rights, global citizen protections, and societal resilience are upheld. As our dependency on innovation grows and we embrace immersive and emerging technologies, we will explore governance, policy, and standards developments to build a trustworthy future for the citizens.
