ITU FG-MV in the metaverse

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has embraced the future by hosting their meetings in the metaverse. At the first ITU Focus Group on metaverse (FG-MV) meeting, it was resolved to organize Special Sessions and fully engage in the metaverse to enhance collaboration. This innovative approach was previewed at the third ITU Forum in Arusha, Tanzania, showcasing the transformative potential of virtual environments.

Encouraged by positive feedback, the Focus Group in October 2023 decided to further investigate using a virtual reality platform for meetings. From then until May 2024, several working and task group meetings took place in the metaverse, where experts shared insights and crafted deliverables together. This initiative set a new bar for virtual collaboration, underscoring the significant impact of advanced technology in the telecommunications sector.

This represents a a critical step towards adoption, and also a key opportunity to get adequate feedback from all stakeholders.

In celebration of its 60th anniversary, the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) has invited artists from around the world to create a unique and immersive experience that transcends borders and time. You will embark on a virtual reality journey guided by art and six decades of UNRISD’s pioneering research for social change. During this journey, you will encounter 39 artists representing 23 countries from six regions, taking you through time—from “where we come from” to “where we are” and “where we are going.” You will be able to revisit some of the events that have shaped the past 60 years of our history, explore current challenges in gender, climate, economic and social justice, and be transported into the future, where a visionary eco-social world is founded on principles of equality and justice for both people and the planet. This project is a call to unlock the potential that resides within our collective imagination, reminding us that our quest to build a more just world begins with our ability to imagine it.
