EarthGames on Tap! Video Games to Shape Our Future

The following invitation is from the UW Center for Creative Conservation.

You are warmly welcomed to our inaugural EarthGames on Tap, an evening of fun and inspiration hosted by the UW Center for Creative Conservation.

We are bringing together researchers and video game developers to spark collaborations on games for change – specifically, video games that are good for people and the planet.

Come hear short, spirited presentations by acclaimed writer Emma Marris and award-winning game developer John Krajewski. Learn how to ‘gamify’ research, and meet others working in the environmental, education, and social change realms. Mingle and brainstorm over locally-sourced beer, pizza, and popcorn–and try your hand playing a curated selection of ‘earthgames’!
