SUSTAINABLE NEXUS

Project: BSG-Go
Virtual Meeting & Physical Meeting
For a sustainable Indie and Game developer ecosystem Kicking-off a community of sustainable practice

Description

Slowly but steadily, we have come to understand that we cannot tackle the range of alarming societal and environmental issues in silos. They are all interconnected. Not surprisingly, in this spirit there is an increasing number of pioneers in the gaming industry fighting for the protection of the environment, of human beings, of their diversity, their health and equal rights. And while we may not solve any sustainability issues ourselves, we have the power contribute to making a positive impact.

Our hybrid conference with local events in Malmö, Stockholm, Berlin and Cologne serves as a dynamic meeting point for the Baltic Sea and European game developer community, rallying to address pressing challenges around environmental impact, social issues, inclusion, and diversity. The conference launches an initiative with dedicated trainings, network meetups, and workshops put ideas into practice and spread sustainable innovations to a large scale across a advocating community of sustainable practice.
