The team of the Erasmus+ funded research project “Greening Games” has published its Education Report:
The report maps out the green gaming research, related didactic offer and the initiatives of the games development sector. Based on interview and survey material, the analysis of selected literature and games industry’s outreach projects, it provides a comprehensive picture of the current needs of higher education as well as the industry. The goal of the report is to contextualise existing pro-environmental initiatives, identify gaps in current knowledge, and most of all to embrace the variety of voices and attitudes towards these issues across the field.
As a next step the research team will develop, test and distribute flagship didactic materials addressing the interdisciplinary nature of green digital gaming. These will be tested in selected higher education programs and finally shared as open access content for the broader academic and teaching community.
