The Metaverse is no longer Sci-Fi.

We are already confronting these Realities.

The Metaverse Safety Week (MSW 2022) is an international community effort, a safety awareness campaign, led by the XR Safety Initiative(XRSI), featuring industry leaders from around the world at a week-long conference inside an exclusively created Virtual World.

The 3rd annual Metaverse Safety Week, we celebrate the opportunities to create a better and safer Metaverse for all, spreading awareness and promoting policies, guidelines, and research. We explore core issues related to the Metaverse through art, panels, debates, and workshops, bringing global perspectives to advance our shared ecosystem.

It's an experience that attracts multidisciplinary talent to address the risks and opportunities that come along with the next iteration of the Internet, the Metaverse. An opportunity to meet the international speakers and participants including lawmakers, regulators, technology leaders of international organizations, EU/US/UN officials, civil society representatives, business executives, and more in an exclusive online Virtual World.

Save the Date: December 10-15, 2022!

Our 2022 virtual event will open on 10 December for 5 days of online sessions in a unique virtual venue and rich, immersive experiences crafted for the occasion. MSW 2022 will feature a global agenda with sessions, social moments, panels, and live interviews.

We keep Privacy, Safety, and Trust at the forefront throughout the week.
