We are committed to:

Our Mission

The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on the Metaverse and Web 3.0 brings together Parliamentarians across parties and leading industry experts, technologists, academics, civil society figures and organisations who share a common interest in understanding and impacting policy within the space. We collaborate in order to inform government decision making, improve understanding of these transformative technologies and explore the most pressing opportunities, issues and challenges facing the Metaverse and Web 3.0 landscape.

We keep MPs and Lords in Parliament up-to-date and encourage, support and promote development of the UK’s exciting Metaverse and Web 3.0 scene, helping to shape the creation of a national strategy towards it. Our goal is to ensure that the UK benefits from the full potential of these rapidly growing technologies and is forward leaning so that the most favourable conditions are created, both for safe and sustainable innovation, and for shared and lasting prosperity that leaves no one behind.  Therefore we aim to engage with the broad range of areas that these emerging technologies will impact, from the societal and financial to the technical, considering, exploring and facilitating the exchange of ideas and views.

We are working towards ensuring the UK is a global leader in the space when it comes to policymaking and developing a clear regulatory framework that establishes balanced ground rules and best practices. Current legislation needs to be updated to deal with these new sectors and we seek to make sure that policy keeps pace with the latest technological advancements. Please join us to contribute to the debate and help shape the future! The four key words that best sum up our focus and work are: Asses, Mitigate, Incentivise, Collaborate.

The Pillars of the APPG

The APPG has been established to provide evidence, guidance and recommendations, as well as to conduct research and help build up the UK’s ecosystem, in order to ensure that the UK is a pre-eminent global leader in the space and is not left behind during this wave of great technological change. We promote interaction between policymakers and industry leaders to foster understanding, inform proposals and, most importantly, help shape policy in the Metaverse and Web 3.0 space.
