Sustainability Game Jam (11/11-12)

Passionate about the environment? Like games and want to try making one? The Sustainability Game Jam Nov 11-12 is for you!

What’s a game jam? It’s a weekend event where participants design a game around a theme – this jam will focus on creating games (using any format) that educate, inform, and promote sustainability. Participants can be assigned to a team or create and register their own team. All backgrounds and skill levels are welcome at this free event! Our vision is an accessible event that allows people to work together, have fun, and be creative while helping the planet and ourselves.

And thanks to sponsors, we can provide food for registered participants and prizes ($250,$150,$50+People’s Choice) for top game designs. Check out the website for this and other event information, including “How It Works”, schedule, judging/awards, and registration.

This event is not limited to the UW community, so feel free to also share broadly or forward to others that might be interested! We’ve attached a flyer and a short URL for sharing on social media: tinyurl.com/ydgvtvda
