XR COMMUNITY CELEBRATION

CHILD SAFETY DAY
Monday, December 7th
For 2020’s XR Safety Awareness Week, we decided to kick off the celebrations and educational panels with a focus on Child Safety in XR.

The Holidays are just around the corner and this year we expect to see more kids than ever before get into VR, AR, and other emergent tech. We invite them and their families into the XR family, but as with an emphasis on how to be safe in these environments.

POWERED BY THE XR SAFETY INITIATIVE

CHILD SAFETY DAY | MONDAY

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

While anyone is invited to join XR Safety Awareness Week and contribute their own events, product announcements, content releases, and beyond, here are a few events that we are excited to bring to you along with XR Safety Ambassadors:


CHILD SAFETY DAY | MONDAY

CHILD SAFETY IN VR: ZOOM PANEL

New tech is always appealing to younger generations and with the increased accessibility to immersive technology through more affordable stand-alone headsets, children are finding their way into VR games and communities. During Child Safety in VR: Parents’ Perspective, expert panelists will discuss whose responsibility it is to police the communities and what sorts of standards we should set for this emerging immersive tech. Their perspectives are unique since they can comment as parents who have extensive knowledge about some area of the VR industry.

Time: Monday, Dec 7th at 12:30pm PST
