Opening keynote: Life in the Metaverse
Digitalization is rapidly transforming hype into reality. Whether you call it the new Internet or the world’s Digital Twin, the Metaverse is truly here. This breakthrough technology aims to transform our social connectivity, mobility, and collaboration at multiple levels through augmented and virtual reality.
A new world driven by millennial disruption and disparate values, the Metaverse runs on digital ledgers and token-based transactions – and are providing businesses and celebrities an alternative market to monetize their works and fame. The potential for new experiences and market opportunity is virtually profound. What are the implications for consumers, enterprises and investors? As our personal identity and lives increasingly extend to the Metaverse, the business case and impact opportunities are boundless.
Panel session one: Energy transition – The next wave
The impetus for energy transition heightens as price spikes, tightened supply, and geopolitical conflict raise the stakes. Greenflation underscores the critical need for green energy expansion, further catalyzing the global commitment toward net-zero emissions. As companies around the world seek to mitigate the impact of climate change, many are forced to adapt, transform or even abandon their normal modes of business. This transition sees the rise of more reliable renewable energy and requires the joint effort of companies and governments to reimagine the future of energy.

Panel session two: A recipe for the future of food
The effects of climate change, war and protectionism have intensified the critical need to develop sustainable food systems. More than 80% of the food sector’s emissions are attributed to animal-related food. How can we reform our global food system for greater food security and reduced carbon emissions? Plant-based food, cultured meats and smart agriculture technology lead the way in boosting sustainable food supply. The food industry seems ripe for reformation to achieve compound gains: increased nutrition value, food sustainability and decarbonization.
Moderator: Martin Soong, Anchor, CNBC
