Climate change is one of the world’s most pressing issues. Just this past summer, we’ve witnessed some of its devastating effects in the form of severe heat waves and relentless downpours, resulting in raging wildfires and massive floodings. Crucial action is needed to steer our planet away from a future where these are everyday scenes.
So what can the video games industry do?
That’s the key question that needs to be answered at the first Green Games Summit. Delivered by our colleagues at UKIE, in collaboration with ISFE and the UN Environment Programme Playing for the Planet Alliance, the goal of this digital event is to bring the international video games sector together to share knowledge and discuss and shape our industry’s response to climate challenges and sustainability issues.
Taking place on October 20 and October 21, over the course of two afternoons (from 3 PM until 6.30 PM) you’ll be able to find out how your studio can become more environmentally sustainable and hear the latest thinking on the role the wider games sector can play in tackling the climate crisis. During a mix of keynotes, showcases, panels, debates and networking opportunities, we can learn from and inspire each other how to help protect our precious planet.
Our fellow publisher federation VGFB (Video Games Federation Belgium), also part of BelgianGames, is a global supporter of this event and we would like to encourage all of our local video games companies (big and small) to take some time out of their busy schedules to sign up for this important event.
