We can’t wait to see all of these great ideas live in game!

Over 25 studios from around the world – with a collective player base of over one billion – have collaborated and committed to implementing green activations in and out-of-game such as new modes, maps, themed events, storylines and messaging. Guiding the studios is a theme centred around conserving and restoring forests and oceans.

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America, Creative Mobile OU, E-Line Media, GameDuell, Goodgame Studios, Hinterland Games, MAG Interactive, Mojang Studios, NetEase Games, Niantic, PlayStation Studios Media Molecule, PlayStation Studios Team ASOBI, PerpGames, Rovio Entertainment, ShiftSpace, Sony Interactive Entertainment Platform Team, Space Ape Games, Supercell, Sybo, TiMi Studio Group, Tiramisu, Toppluva, Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Barcelona Mobile, Ubisoft Future Games of London, Ubisoft Mainz, Ubisoft Paris, Ustwo Games, Wildworks, Wooga.

Meanwhile, two pledge campaigns have been set up around conserving and restoring forests and oceans. Play4Forests is focused on conserving and restoring forests in areas such as the Amazon, the Congo Basin and South East Asia, while Glowing, Glowing Gone is a campaign concentrating on the protection of coral reefs, home to a quarter of all marine life, through climate and ocean action. Participants have called on their communities to engage with these campaigns, and the petitions will be presented to world leaders at future UN Summits including COP26, the UN’s Climate Summit, later this year.
