With the pandemic keeping us apart, emerging tech can bring us back together. Emblematic Group put together a Mozilla Hubs hangout - an open, social VR platform - so that attendees could meet on a virtual rooftop or a pirate ship via Mozilla Hubs. During the program, our Hubs hosts served as guides to navigating the metaverse and lively, informal discussions.

Please note, while these Mozilla Hubs rooms remain open to explore, the event occurred during the live ONA Insights: Emerging Tech program.
