Welcome to the Decentraland Conference Center

Vision

We believe that Virtual Worlds and Virtual Reality can enable new paradigms of collaboration, learning, cooperative endeavors, colocation, and consultation among people. We also believe that a virtual conference center can contribute greatly to the successful development of virtual worlds. Whereas much of the space in a virtual world like Decentraland may be a dense urban reality, or private lands, an open, spacious and inviting Conference Center can encourage people to meet, think deeply, converse well, and consult about projects and the future, not only for Decentraland, but for the development of human potential and the future of civilization.

Mission

The mission of the Decentraland Conference Center is to be the premier venue in Decentraland for meetings and conferences, for its members and the broader Decentraland community, as well as a place where outside organizations can make use of virtual reality for their conferences and meetings.

To have a welcoming place in Decentraland where we can consult about its development and future, and about how our work, creativity and play in Decentraland can bring benefits both in-world and in the physical world.

Description

A Conference Center in a natural, semi-forested setting in the northern part of Genesis City, with the University to the West and the Forest to the north.

The Conference Center is a place where:

  • People and organizations can host meetings, or visit for tranquility and thought.
  • Ideas can be discussed in an atmosphere of trust and unity.
  • Conferences, meetings, talks, workshops and classes can be held.
  • Service projects can be conceived.
  • Consultation and mediation can be hosted.
  • Organizations and business that want to be located in the conference can rent space.

Participants are welcome to bring a wealth of diverse world views, including those of a spiritual nature. Conversations about the spiritual aspects of our experience are welcome. The space may be used for private or group worship, among other activities. But this is not a place of proselytization or religious debate, nor of disparaging the views of others.

A place where there is curiosity and openness to the exploration of the role of virtual reality in the development of civilization, in new paradigms of education and of governance, in the life of society, and in the development of the individual and community.

Although this is not a Baha'i facility, we wish to acknowledge that its principles have been inspired by Baha'i teachings, and that the lotus temple is patterned after the Baha'i temple in New Delhi.

Plans and Status

The land in the Conference Center is pooled, so that a unified conference center design can be built.

The leadership team is gathering ideas, building sketches, learning the technology, and soliciting assistance for designing and building a prototype.

A Preliminary Development Plan has been drafted.

It includes a Preliminary Layout of the Conference Center District.

District Governance

A district agreement / governance plan has been drafted, and is in legal review. It will be shared with the district land contributors once there is confidence that legal, tax and liability issues are well covered and the general form is acceptable to Decentraland.

It will allow the Conference Center to have a management and operations structure.

It envisions a community membership function, an executive function, and a judiciary (conflict resolution) function, and a way to incentivize people to contribute in ways beyond the initial land contributions.
