On September 20, 2023, the METAYOUTH Project conducted its second alignment workshop. The workshop was held online and counted with the participation of young individuals, academics, and professionals in the field of digital security. The objective of this workshop was to open a discussion on the educational framework of the course to be developed, gathering input from various stakeholders regarding their perceptions of knowledge and competencies required in relation to the Metaverse.
About the project
METAYOUTH (Aligning Youth, Parents And Teachers For Resilient Participation In Metaverses)
It is an EU Erasmus+ project that runs from November 2022 until September 2024 (24 months). The metaverse is a network of 3D spaces/worlds that host assets, avatars (virtual identities) and are immersive, hosting users that can simultaneously interact with each other and with the responsive virtual space. Nowadays, all kinds of activities are performed in metaverses (e.g. the development of virtual identities). However, 95% of people who have access to the internet daily, do not inherently possess the skills for safe and effective use of digital technologies.
