Founded in 2004, Games for Change empowers game creators and social innovators to drive real-world change using games and technology that help people to learn, improve their communities, and contribute to make the world a better place. They inspire youth to explore civic issues and learn 21st-century and STEM skills through their STUDENT CHALLENGE and train educators to run game design classes on impact games. They incubate projects through their game design challenges and executive production expertise in coalition building.
the 16th Annual Games for Change Festival will take place from June 17 – 19, 2019 in New York City. Developers, creators, researchers, technologists, educators, policy makers, and non-profits will converge at this nexus of impact to share and learn how they can leverage the power of games and immersive media for social good.
