Web3 Initiative

An initiative that focuses on the intersection of the $4.4 Trillion Global Wellness Economy and major web-related developments (inclusive but not limited to the Metaverse, NFTs, Cryptocurrency, Decentralized Finance, etc.), and its implications for the business of wellness, and society at large.

The wellness industry, as noted in The Future of Wellness 2022 Trend Report, has notoriously been slow to embrace technology.  This is an opportunity to seize the moment, and prepare ourselves for Web 3.0-related discussions as a force for business and societal good while caring for the wellbeing of our planet’s citizens.

Objectives

As often is the case, true innovation comes from leaders and disruptors outside of an industry. With this belief in mind, the initiative first prioritizes members from academia, technology, digital science, finance and media, experience engineering, gaming and futurist sectors with some exception made for wellness leaders from established, tech-driven companies and platforms. Global representation and diversity is also a priority.
