Meet people

Meet new people on a virtual tropical island or by a cosy campfire in a virtual forest! You can walk around freely in a 3D world, talk to people with your webcam as your head and have fun. It may sound silly but it is a lot of fun. And it is a perfect informal and virtual way to connect with people - give it a try! Come back later: the island and forest will be available between 15 and 19 February. You don’t need to register.
