The Metaverse is being developed and promoted by a variety of technology companies and researchers. Areas of conversation may include: Will the Metaverse create new opportunities for social interaction and collaboration or lead to isolation and disconnection? How will the Metaverse impact issues of identity, privacy, and security?

How may the Metaverse lead to greater inequality, with some individuals and communities having greater access to and control over virtual resources than others?
