About

The Metaverse is no longer hype. We’re living it.

XR Safety Week is an international community effort, led by the XR Safety Initiative, featuring industry leaders from around the world and spanning five days.

XRSW 2022 will explore the challenges of Extended Realities (XR) in critical areas of the immersive ecosystem.

A place for discovery, with talks on theoretical and practical aspects of the industry and how to move it forward from leading international experts.

Partnering with educational institutions, XR Safety Week delivers the skills, ideas, and forethought to everyone interested in building our future with awareness.

At XR 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 such as bias, transparency, and data ownership through art, panels, debates, and workshops, bringing global perspectives to advance our shared ecosystem.

Our 2022 virtual event will open on 10 December 2021 for 5 days of online sessions in a unique AltspaceVR venue crafted for the occasion by Chicken Waffle. XR Safety Week 2021 will feature a global agenda designed for you to pick and choose when you can participate in sessions, social moments, enjoy live interviews, or watch on-demand talks and discussions at your own pace.

XR Safety Week is created and promoted by the XR Safety Initiative, the first global nonprofit with the mission of helping build safe and inclusive immersive realities, but everyone in the global XR community can play a big part. At XR Safety Week, we ask everyone who’s interested in building a better and safer Metaverse to connect, collaborate, and share their knowledge or passion by submitting and hosting their own events. These initiatives will be promoted through XR Safety Week channels and contribute to a community-driven global movement for responsible innovation, better regulations, and a deeper knowledge of the worlds we are immersing in.
