In times of societal upheaval and conflict it is debilitating to think of what we can do as individuals to extend support to those in need.
In times of societal upheaval and conflict it is debilitating to think of what we can do as individuals to extend support to those in need. In 2022 as the world braces against the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the impending crisis of climate change and armed conflicts that threaten national sovereignty, it is important to remember that we can all do something, whether individually or by collective action.
At SuperWorld we also acknowledge that the metaverse community, although still developing, is fully capable of realizing its goal of interoperability and collaboration through mobilizing against injustice and conflict in dire times. XR technology, blockchain and NFTs–while cutting-edge–are wasted without using them for the betterment of society and against societal injustice.
With this in mind, how can we leverage these technologies and mobilize the metaverse community to build a better world? For companies, it starts with understanding how we can make a positive social impact. It is not enough to build a community of digitally-minded individuals dedicated to decentralization and freedom without using its fruits to help real world communities. By doing research, partnering with reputable non-profit organizations and providing aid, we can ensure our impact is swift and genuinely felt by those in need.
In an age of disinformation, where the disadvantaged fall prey to overly biased news sources, augmented reality can facilitate clarity and truth. The future is no longer bound by the constraints of propagandistic television and print news, but is open to the advancements of geo-pinned location-focused news discoverable from anywhere in the world.
Beyond providing aid and utilizing immersive technology to spread awareness, metaverse organizations can also do their part to spotlight affected individuals and groups within their communities in support of their craft. With the case of Ukraine, SuperWorld is committed to uplifting community members by showing the world what is happening in Ukraine and to help spread the message of Peace and to Stop this War and Putin.
With this in mind, we invite SuperCitizens across the globe to download the SuperWorld Mobile App, open its asset library and anchor any one of our numerous AR assets in their local communities, spreading the word of support to Ukraine. This initiative, along with upcoming direct monetary donations by our organization are created with the goal of amplifying the voices of the voiceless in a time of injustice. By anchoring these messages around the world, including in areas where disinformation runs rampant, you are doing your part to dispel propagandistic falsities.
