DEBATE : For an ethical and creative metaverse ?

We, the cultural and creative industry (from museums to brands to agencies), are obsessed with the emergence of the metaverse, alternating between delight and questioning.

At 1.618 Paris, a pioneer in sustainable luxury, virtuous storytelling, the celebration of responsible beauty, innovation and creativity, we have set ourselves the mission of understanding and collectively imagining the desirable contours of a technology under construction, measuring its environmental impacts and its potential for raising awareness.

Barbara Coignet, Founder of 1.618, and Stéphane Galienni, Associate Director of BLSTK, are offering a morning of reflection and exchange on the challenges of metavers for the creative and responsible industries in an atypical and intimate location in the heart of the Haut Marais in Paris.

  • How to address the issue of ethics and responsibility?
  • How to secure content and avatars?
  • What is the legal framework today in Web3?
  • What if these new technologies allowed us to amplify emotions, creativity and awareness of sustainable development issues?

To answer these essential questions, 1.618 and BLSTK have brought together key personalities for round table discussions. Masterclass by Stéphane Galienni who presents his study “Luxe Metamorphosis”: An insight into the various challenges of the meta-verse for the luxury, fashion and beauty sector.
