Founded in 2004, Games for Change empowers game creators and social innovators to drive real-world change using games that help people to learn, improve their communities, and contribute to make the world a better place. They convene stakeholders through their annual G4C Festival and foster the exchange of ideas and resources through workshops and consulting projects. They inspire youth to explore civic issues and learn 21st-century and STEM skills through our 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. They act as an amplifier by curating and evangelizing games for change to the public through their games arcades and awards.
They aim to leverage entertainment and engagement for social good. To further grow the field, Games for Change convenes multiple stakeholders, highlights best practices, incubates games, and helps create and direct investment into new projects.
