GDC 2005: Serious Games Summit - Games for Change

Games for Change Lunch

The Games for Change group is a SIG within the Serious Games Initiative that focuses on games used to benefit non-profits. Following the theme of communication and persuasion, this group considers games as tools for effecting positive social change. The conversation wandered around a number of topics, from funding to working with non-profits. The gathering got me thinking about a related concept: Game Developers for Social Responsibility (GDSR). Diverse fields such as medicine and computer science have similar groups. Perhaps it's time for the IGDA to start a SIG or some other type of group with that goal in mind.
