About Sustainability and Inclusivity Statement

At the VRDays Foundation, we are deeply committed to fostering a sustainable and inclusive future for the XR community, industry and our event. We recognise the immense potential of XR as a transformative technology and the responsibility we have in help shaping a better world through our own choices and actions in the realms of sustainability, diversity and inclusion.

Developing Sustainable Technologies

At the VRDays Foundation, we actively commit ourselves to fostering a sustainable and inclusive future for the XR community and industry. We recognize the transformative potential of XR technology and our responsibility in shaping its trajectory towards a better world.

Environmental Sustainability

We actively work to minimize our activities’ environmental impact and promote sustainable practices throughout the XR ecosystem. We dedicate ourselves to reducing our carbon footprint and pursuing a green certificate for our Immersive Tech Week festival. By raising awareness and actively seeking partnerships with environmentally conscious organizations, we aim to inspire the XR community to adopt sustainable practices, reduce waste, and prioritize the long-term well-being of our planet.

Diversity and Inclusion

We embrace diversity as a strength that drives innovation, creativity, and collaboration. At the VRDays Foundation, we firmly believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment that celebrates individuals from all backgrounds, ethnicities, and identities. We value bringing unique perspectives and experiences to our team and are committed to providing equal opportunities, ensuring a fair and unbiased selection process based solely on qualifications and merit.

We are committed to nurturing a culture of respect and belonging, both within our team and at all events we organize. We believe that respectful behavior, collaboration, and open dialogue form the foundation of creating inclusive environments where all attendees, speakers, and exhibitors feel at home. We aim to provide spaces that encourage valuable discussions, the sharing of ideas, and innovation. We aim to create an environment that celebrates and embraces different perspectives, cultures, genders, ages, and identities by actively seeking diverse voices and perspectives to foster innovation and create more meaningful and inclusive experiences within the XR ecosystem. By upholding these core values, we aim to create a supportive and inclusive community where diversity is celebrated, differences are embraced, and everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Join us on this journey as we shape a future where sustainability and inclusivity intertwine to drive meaningful change.

The VRDays Foundation eagerly welcomes collaboration, feedback, and partnerships with organizations that share our vision and strive to create a more sustainable, inclusive, and ethical future for XR and immersive technologies. Together, we can harness the power of XR to inspire positive change, empower individuals, and create a more sustainable and inclusive world for current and future generations.
