Empowering African Voices by Broadcasting in the Metaverse in 2024

Empowering African Voices by Broadcasting in the Metaverse in 2024

William Jackson, M.Ed. MetaverseWP
World Metaverse Council, Metaverse Education Project Director

Broadcasting in the Metaverse is unfolding to be a great tool using digital platforms to expand and empower African voices to improve social consciousness and address societal issues across the continent.

Changes in the political structures across Africa have given rise by many Africans across the socio-economic ecosystems and improving the educational equitability and access to conversations designed to include the silent voices of students who are seeking to be increasingly engaged to improve their communities, their counties, and their states.

It’s a growing goal inspiration that Africans using diverse technologies are digital and increasingly immersive in content and developing content broadcasters are looking to share their voices across the second largest continent on planet Earth. Their voices will be heard either by Blogging, Podcasting, Threading, TikToking, YouTubing, Xing or any means necessary.

Technology is opening avenues for new ways to reach people who need hope that change is available. Platforms, such as YouTube, Threads, X (formally Twitter), LinkedIn offer ways for African voices to share their content that can become global and inspirational.  The use of videos can be shared across Web 2.0 and as African content creators are transitioning and integrating more Web 3.0, broadcasting in the metaverse could become a consistent reality.

Africa is the youngest continent globally with over 70% of sub-Saharan Africa under the age of 30. United Nations data shows the rapid expanding use of young Africans with Smartphones and big dreams.

This is important to understand because of the influence the generations are expected to have in young people being involved in creating businesses, growing as entrepreneurs and their influences in politics and addressing society issues. The increased inclusion of girls and women can be seen by their growing voices across social media and now the growing Web 3/4/5 ecosystems. Women in Africa are vital for economic growth, innovation, peaceful protests and security of the family that is increasingly seen across the broad spectrum with digital tools, platforms and how AI, VR, AR & MR influence engagements.

The team of MetaverseWP is working to collaborate with technology conferences across Africa to sponsor and provide scholarships to youth and teens to expose them to African thought leaders, coders, programmers that are the leading influencers in multiple areas of technology. Using platforms MetaverseWP https://metaversewp.com/   can be seen in the expansion of immersive environments that can be used for collaboration, connecting
across the borders, boundaries and broad reaches of land that makes up Africa.

Not relying on Visas, documents to move freely and even financial restraints, the metaverse has grown to be an open gate for freedom of expression, sharing ideas, building collaborations and reaching across the diverse cultural differences, religions following and socio-economic diversity that separates friends and families.

Chinua Achebe, known as the “Father of African Literature,” his quotes coincided with the use of digital tools and platforms and the sharing of
African voices is seen here: “If you don’t like someone’s story, write your own.” The broadcasting of digital stories, ideas, and sharing of experiences is seen every day on social platforms. The traditional writing styles are replaced
by the audio, video and blending of AI, and VR. Achebe would have been excited to use these tools to enhance and amplify his writings across Africa.

What the Metaverse has become is a support system and platform for African people have already connected in society across their daily lives. New technologies are being created and growing in popularity that are immersive, engaging and interactive. Africans are accepting the invitation to use any means necessary to connect across the continent and globally.

Using these tools to bring conversations, exchanging of ideas, and sharing hope for a better tomorrow in the conversations that grow into collaborations and connections to change social behaviors, expand ideas and even broadcast across multiple platforms using multiple African languages. Technology has no limits and not limitations in creating, pivoting, amplifying, magnifying and transforming African content.

In many ways virtual reality platforms will be no different than television and radio, because they are content driven, but the beauty is that individual Africans have more power of the content created. Africans are free to share successes, challenges, ideas, their faith and broadcast friendships, compassion, and hope where there may not have been possible.  Africans are able to reach people not otherwise accessible through commercial media.
The Metaverse, AI, VR, and other tech has been created for this time, as uncertain and scary as it can seem.

Though technology is changing, the one constant is there are Africans everywhere that can connect and support each other. Only time will tell
what new ways there will be to build connections that promote equality, freedoms and serve to empowering people across the African continent
and the African Global Diaspora. Stay tuned as Africa’s voice grows louder
and stronger across the digital ether.
The New Year is just a start, there are phenomenal growth potentials across the African continent that will forever change the creating, sharing, developing, and inspiring of content that will be created. Technology is a tool,
a platform, a formulated binary accumulation of data sets, digital ecosystems, and creative opportunities of expression.

The growing metaverse will open opportunities as never before, as the
World Metaverse Council – Metaverse Education Project Directors I see
global collaborations as never before. The opportunity to bring culture diversity and educational exchanges to the world.

Sharing what Mike Abel, M&C Saatchi Group South Africa Founding Partner and CEO, stated about the metaverse and its’s great potential.
“The unique afro-themed metaverse establishes local representation in a growing global digital universe and will open our continent up to significant digital and economic growth opportunities for both talent, clients and
industry colleagues to come together to solve business and even societal
challenges with creativity,” As an educator of 33 years I hope to bring to

Africa the great opportunities of new way to learn across culture, generation, and even religious differences. It can be done with understanding, patience, and a willingness to see beyond where we are not and looking into the future.
Let take the next step to educate new generations with new ways of learning.

Building on the metaverse is like becoming an interior decorator,
floral designer, digitally imagining environments and even strategically
placing plants, animals, and furniture in an immersive environment.
Working in @Spatial where literally thousands of people can see
your works is humbling, exciting, inspiring, enlightening and revealing
of a person’s ability to create living spaces digitally.

Building for the WordCamp conference in Managua, Nicaragua,
Central America has been innovative, skillfully developmental, and
intensive to set a model that respects the people, the nation,
and the value of WordCamp Managua, Nicaragua. Technology
is providing the opportunity to help people gather in futuristic
ways, to collaborate and cooperate.

There is a change of mentality related to Nicaragua that defies
the media reports and images of poverty, unemployment, loss
of hope and lack of support in education, economics, and
social injustices.

Kids, Youth and Teen Conferences are important in Central,
South America and even Mexico. They provide a place to
directly teach the future of Central, South, and Mexican
cultures. The youth are a important and valuable resource
that should be a priority. If communities want to prosper,
grow, survive and thrive children, youth, teens and young
adults must have the necessary education to improve
their neighborhood, communities, cities, and even the
nations they live in.

Technology is opening doors to businesses across Nicaragua
and Central America, Mexico is modifying it’s digital infrastructure
so employment in tech careers can increase, commerce can
be adapted to digital elements, education can be sustainable
with immersive learning. The environmental considerations
of preservation, protection, and producing a way to build on
helping man work with the environment not against it.

Technology can build thought leaders, knowledge builders
and promote sustainable relationships with people, and provide
education, economic, and sustainable assistance that helps
the people to manage their own governments, build their
own economic successes without fear of political, criminal,
and violent consequences.

2023 has provided a celebration across Central, South and
Mexican growth of technology allowing Meetups, Webinars,
Gatherings, Conferences and with ability to collaborate and
cooperate to build entrepreneurs and business owners.
The opportunities to create independent businesses and
create entrepreneurs that build communities are possible
and probable if there is support, encouragement,
empowerment, and hope.

The celebration continues with Central American WordCamp
Conferences. From Managua, Nicaragua, to San Jose,
Costa Rica, to Panama, to El Salvador, and even to Mexico.
Technology is allowing Central America to collaborate,
cooperate and connect to positively influence peoples’
lives. In 2024 there will be a growth of design and modeling
for Central, South, and Mexican communities to be involved,
engaged and active with technology.

There needs to be a desire to stop politicians from using Central and South American people as political tools, and provide education, economic, and sustainable assistance that helps the people to manage their own governments, build their own economic successes without fear of political, criminal, and violent consequences.
