What is the Green Game Jam?
The first Green Game Jam (GGJ) was born out of the gaming industry’s commitments at the 2019 Climate Action Summit, after which many of the members of the Playing for the Planet Alliance wanted to do more to leverage the power of gaming.
With every tap of a button on a controller, keyboard or handheld screen, players are giving gamemakers their most valuable resources–time and trust. Through the GGJ, we look to create a space for game studios with live games, within which they can find best practices to empower their millions of players around environmental subjects, through the games they know and love. We call the environmental content which studios implement in their games “green activations” which are essentially an opportunity for gamers to either learn, share or act on such themes in an authentic, fun and meaningful way.
Positive Impact So Far
Over 266,000 trees were planted in the real world as a result of the activations in games, with this number likely to increase.
