The World Economic Forum (WEF) is on track to be at the center of defining what the future metaverse will look like by inserting itself in the metaverse’s creation early on.
WEF’s “multistakeholder initiative” wants to assume a leadership role in defining and building the metaverse, Facebook (Meta) President of Global Affairs and former British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has announced.
The initiative, laid out in a post on the Davos event’s website, is ambitious: it seeks to provide guidance on creating “an ethical, inclusive, economically viable metaverse,” and represent the link between businesses, regulators, civil society, and academia from both the private and public sectors.
“The Defining and Building the Metaverse” wants to focus on producing governance principles for it, but also on something defined as “societal value creation.” The initiative’s first key area is supposed to determine safe, interoperable and “inclusive” technology and environments for the metaverse, while what “value creation” means is not explained.
The post does, however, say that the initiative will provide information about risks and incentives to businesses and society, as well as individuals.
And, it will “also outline how value chains may be disrupted, industries may be transformed, new assets could be created and rights protected.”
