This session continues a discussion that started on awe.live that features examples of incredible use-cases emerging for how “immersive and experiential” technologies are providing new capabilities to help build education, awareness, and empathy around the major challenges facing humanity.

Highlights will include three specific initiatives driving SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), positive impact and how XR will help create a “Metaverse for Good.” Ori Inbar, Co-Founder of AWE, and Marcus Shingles, CEO of Exponential Destiny (a 501c3 non-profit that is primarily led by youth from under-served communities), will also share two global prize competitions: AWE’s Climate Change Challenge and ExpoD’s “Metaverse for SDG Global Prize & VR Competition,” recently launched with the support of the UN’s ITU agency. Both competitions will give the entire AWE community an opportunity to participate and get involved!

Description

Our model of the world doesn't match the reality of the world. This is why we often find the future mystifying, we struggle unnecessarily, and are continually surprised when disruption occurs.

And most importantly: No deep tech, Metaverse or other innovation will lead to a thriving future until we bring these two into alignment.

What if we learned to see the world differently?

In this inspiring and paradigm-shifting talk, Innovation Architect and Near Futurist Neil Redding shares how seeing the world through the lens of connected ecosystems is the critical unlock — for sustainable business growth into the emerging future, for solving Humanity's greatest challenges, and for building the new immersive worlds of our most visionary dreams.
