Metaverse and Web 3.0 APPG

First Registered: 15/06/2022 • Last updated on: 24/01/2024

In recognition of the transformative nature of the Metaverse and Web 3 technology with its profound effect on our society and the future of our children, the APPG will consider influence of its application on policy within parliament, industry, and society at large particularly regarding data protection, safeguarding system security as well as user safety.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
