Games for Better Futures online meeting - Games, Activism and the Art of Destroying Shit

You can sign up below for the online meeting of the Games for Better Futures community of practice. 

The theme for this meeting can be summed up in the catchy title of Games, Activism and the Art of Destroying Shit. In order to go beyond positive and constructive imaginations, games show amazing potential to unmake current unsustainable systems. But how exactly can games be designed, used and mobilized to inspire real life activity and engagement with the conflict side and power struggles of change processes? Join us in discussing and exploring the possibilities for games to unmake and dismantle destructive societal systems!

Event Timing: August 30 2022, 7-9 PM CET
