SDGs Masterclass: How games can help address the Sustainable Development Goals.

RMIT is hosting a pre-festival masterclass on how games can help address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of the Games for Change Asia-Pacific Festival, and Melbourne International Games Week.

The annual Melbourne International Games Week will be held from October 2 to October 10 2021. Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW) is the largest digital games celebration in the Asia-Pacific, and will feature conferences, events, and activities designed to showcase, educate and connect.

As part of MIGW, the Games for Change Asia-Pacific Festival will be held from Wednesday October 6 to Thursday October 7 2021. The festival, held entirely online and free for all participants, will feature over 100 keynote speakers from across the region. As part of the pre-festival program, there are workshops for educators and games designers.

RMIT is hosting a special session entitled 'How games can help address the SDGs.' This special session will run on Tuesday October 5 from 3pm to 5pm, and will focus on how games can support the global implementation of the SDGs by 2030. The session will feature an opening by Associate Professor Gillian Vesty, College of Business and Law, and Dr Renzo Mori Jr from the RMIT Sustainability Team. By the end of the session, participants will be equipped with all the tools and knowledge they need to create games with tangible social and environmental impact.

This event is a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in the intersection between gaming and social impact. Attendance is free, but registration is essential.
