1 min read Original Link

The small Polynesian island country of Tuvalu has announced it will leverage the use of the metaverse to recreate a digital version of itself in response to rising sea levels. 

According to a report by Reuters, Tuvalu has announced that it will digitally replicate its islands and landmarks in order to preserve the nation’s history and culture. Tuvalu’s Foreign Minister Simon Kofe made the announcement at the COP27 climate summit, arguing that it was time to begin looking at alternative solutions for the country’s survival in the face of rising sea levels.
