Re-State Foundation launches the world’s first MetaUniversity in the Metametaverse
Metaverse has been dominating the headlines since Facebook rebranded to Meta in October 2021 to reflect its focus on the metaverse. As the metaverse gains momentum, companies and organizations are beginning to leverage the technology in several areas including gaming, NFTs, among others.
But one exciting use case of the metaverse is in the area of educational technology and learning. One of the organizations leading the race to use metaverse in education is Re-State Foundation, a Swiss non-profit foundation aiming to reimagine the future of governance.
Today, Re-State Foundation announces the launch of the world’s first MetaUniversity in the Metametaverse. MetaUniversity’s vision is to co-create all essential past, present, and future knowledge related to governance and collaboration, for a systemic evolution towards united humans consciousness. In addition to educational resources on Web3 and collaboration, the MetaUniversity links together and provides a space for all educational institutions currently operating in various metaverses.
The specific focus of the MetaUniversity is bringing together all human knowledge related to collaboration and the future of governance. Humanity has entered the era where mainstreaming the narrative of global collaboration and forging new types of cooperation becomes of the utmost importance. Re-State Foundation’s work aims at promoting collaboration, manifested in various forms, with a special emphasis on technological development.
The MetaUniversity will be a global academic network of leading researchers and institutions around the world engaging in research including the evolution of human collaboration, new tools for the future of governance, Web3 and Cryptoeconomics, digital identity solutions, and others.
The MetaUniversity will also be a portal through which users will be able to enter numerous educational spaces in other metaverses in an ever-expanding effort to make education more accessible. Through the Metametaverse protocol, all users in different educational metaverses will be able to easily see and navigate to other educational themed metaverses.
“The Metaverse represents a powerful testbed for new governance models that are more human-centered, inclusive, responsive, and pluralistic. Open knowledge and accessible education should be top priorities for the next generation of metaverses. It is imperative to make structures and incentives underlying our digital ecosystem evolve alongside its technological foundations”, said Anastasia Kalinina, Co-Founder and CEO of Re-State Foundation.
Joel Dietz, Founder and CEO of Metametaverse said, “Facilitating learning and collaboration is one of the key reasons we built the Metametaverse. It provides a seamless way of connecting different metaverse spaces.”
“The MetaUniversity is an essential part of digital commons driven by community solidarity, group ownership, and open source technologies. We want the metaverse we are developing to become a safe space for its visitors to explore different aspects of human collaboration and discuss the impact of emerging technologies”, said Alexandra Seaman, Head of Partnerships at the Re-State Foundation.
“At the time of greatest need for coherence and cooperation at the global level, we welcome leadership in promoting the connectivity and interdependence between people, as well as collaborative governance innovations. The UAE shares the same vision and spirit, and we look forward to co-developing and testing new collaborative tools that can help us attain more agile and resilient societies”, said Omar Ghobash, Assistant Minister for Cultural Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
Headquartered in Switzerland, Re-State is a Swiss-based non-profit foundation reimagining the future of governance by bringing together leaders from private and public sectors, civil society, tech entrepreneurs, and youth communities to create and test new governance models for peaceful global co-existence in the 21st century and beyond.
Metametaverse is a virtual society and platform for building metaverses. It includes a specific protocol and language for connecting different metaverses.
