General description of the AI solution

Taking under consideration that legal rules are formed eventually via the interaction of society, environment and citizen’s place within
and that the “ natural environment” is taking another form, is crucial to understand the ways by which our legal environmental rules can
apply to this new post-crisis, meta-reality and how this meta- reality interacts with the ecology of our planet.
Metaverse should not be bound by traditional notions of law and jurisdiction. Instead, we need “meta legal principals” and “meta
jurisdiction” for global rules that could be enforced by many stakeholders, not just states. Post pandemic reality as well as metaverse
have a global dimension. Most importantly, -in this new era-we need to restrict the level of damaging nature as well as we need to
regulate how third parties can manipulate environment within the metaverseFurther research and development of methods and institutional procedures for assessing and controlling environmental risks caused by AI
in metaverse era, is needed.( (European Commission 2021c) We will attempt to investigate how the dimension of the environmental
sustainability works in this complex "mosaic" of "legal virtual civilization"(e,g the paradigm of Pokemon Go, which showcased just
how significant location based augmented reality could be in transforming our relationship to places, etc).
