The Metaverse, positioned as a new virtual world free of physical limitations and societal stereotypes, is not yet meeting these ambitions. In fact, 60% of people feel that virtual worlds lack inclusivity, and many are calling for more accessibility.*
Degree® is committed to inspire confidence in everyone to move more. That’s why in partnership with Decentraland, Grammy-nominated recording artist Fat Joe (Joseph Antonio Cartagena), and Paralympic Athlete Blake Leeper, the brand will host the Degree® Metathon™, an initial step toward shaping a more inclusive culture of movement in virtual world.
The Metathon™ will be an inviting experience that introduces the first-ever adaptive wearables in Decentraland, such as a wheelchair and running blades to increase representation in movement.
