Games for Combating Climate Change

Project Description

Gamification is a hot topic in sustainability circles today. This paper addresses the nature of play, types of players, and outlines the different kinds of games being used to combat climate change (and other sustainability challenges). This paper argues for gameful design instead of gamification: a transformative approach that empowers and supports new positive behaviors. The authors argue that for games to help solve serious problems, implementers need to recognize the myriad motivations that drive people to play games. This paper provides a helpful schema to address this.
