Our DAO

Many of us yearn for a more meaningful way to help others. Donating money or volunteering is certainly helpful but doesn't always offer a purposeful lasting connection. It is a temporary "feel good" moment.

 

With MetaHug, becoming a member is simple and allows us to develop a significant connection with others, regardless of status or appearance. A MetaHug blends physical and nonphysical reality, a hug felt in the real world and metaverse alike. Everyone, with or without material possessions, needs a hug. 

Metahug is actually the first DAO in Roblox run by Gen Z & Gen Alpha. 

​It is a new way of coordinating gaming & education communities. It is run by learners who are also the creators of the games.

Here, our members will meet all walks of life through our education platform - democratizing play. Through our DAO, our live, small group classes, and dynamic teachers help kids build genuine friendships and continue to give Hugs.

As a subsidiary of Play2Learn, it bridges the gap between brands and education.​ While Play2Learn brings brands into MetaHug World in Roblox, our DAO runs and coordinates the community​ in and outside the metaverse, bringing the most value to our learners and the brands.

Our Values

WE ARE COMPASSIONATE

We treat everyone we encounter with compassion, seeing the humanity behind every person's problems and experiences.

WE ARE MINDFUL

We honor every person's space. We adopt mindful working & learning practices so that we can create safe spaces for everyone.

WE VOICE

We adopt the radical view that the learners’ voice can change the world. We value and uplift their voices, we empower them to take charge of their learning and explore the topics they love. We honor the informal education, we learn together and improve together, and push ourselves and one another to be greater. We believe in learner-led life-long education.

WE LISTEN

We listen and stay open to everything. We grow alongside our learners and collaborate with them to address what may feel like insurmountable problems.   We believe and invest in the genius of our youth and the power of peer-to-peer support. 

WE GIVE HUGS

We pay it forward. We give hugs, an unconditional, uncircumstantial kindness transferred to a stranger.

It is an act founded on the belief that WHEN we treat everyone as if we are ALL CONNECTED, we WILL transform lives.
