Digital Dignity in the Metaverse

Immersive technologies create their own parallel worlds to the analog experience. Every year the number of users is increasing and even children are already embracing these technologies with enthusiasm. European values should also be reflected in these virtual worlds.

Objective of the initiative

We bring together leaders and opinion leaders to identify the challenges of the coming mass deployment of immersive technologies in Europe and to preserve existing values.

We have been continuing the efforts of our Digital Dignity Initiative in our non-profit organization “Foundation Metaverse Europe” since June 2022. You can find all the info on the related websites of the foundation:

Our VR Business Club brings together executives across all industries, with whom we regularly engage in dialogue about deployment and monetization opportunities for immersive technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality. Although these technologies are still in their infancy, especially in the B2C sector, a very clear picture is already emerging of where the journey is headed. In the future, a virtual image will be created of many interactions and things in the real world, which will gradually develop a life of its own by linking data.

We have created our own values in Europe over centuries, which now need to be transferred, adapted and partly redefined in this new world. In this way we can take advantage of the opportunities and possibilities of this revolutionary development and counteract potential ruptures in our society and business world.
