DAY 1 – DECEMBER 10
Human Rights in the Metaverse
International Human Rights Day
Understanding and Protecting human rights in the Metaverse
On the 74th Human Rights day, we are assembling world leaders, technology professionals, global regulators, policy experts, ethicists, civic organizations, researchers, and underrepresented voices. There is a dire need to explore the complexity and convergence of threats to human rights and the need for additional global frameworks, including Immersive Rights and Neuro Rights. While we have not yet fully addressed the challenges of the Internet era, the evolution of the Metaverse and the adoption of immersive technologies introduce novel risks to humans. The discussions will focus on the challenges associated with current innovations and development that require additional rights to maintain human agency, autonomy, and free will.
