Democracy and VR - Initial Research

Educators in VR Researchers


In this event Guy from VR Democracy will present research on the current challenges for democracy, survey data on the potential for VR to reduce polarization and enhance collaboration, and observational research on democracy themed VR events.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A or open discussion. We welcome you to come and share your thoughts on how VR may be a catalyst to improve democratic collaboration in the 21st century.

The Educators in VR Research Team features researchers from across the spectrum of VR/AR/XR research and development, coming together to share their knowledge, techniques, and research and learn from each other. Join us to discuss the possibilities and potential of research in VR. We host regular meetups and workshops for discussion and learning. If you would like to present on a topic, please join our Educators in VR Discord for Research
