SpilBar 55: Greening the Game
At SpilBar 55 we want to explore possible climate initiatives in the games industry and dive into which efforts game developers and publishers can address to minimize the environmental impact of games and game development.
The talks cover a range of topics, from reducing carbon emissions and waste to incorporating sustainability and eco-consciousness in the game design and narrative. The goal? Hmmm – let’s collectively gain insight into the challenges and opportunities of integrating climate action into the games industry, and find good strategies for promoting environmental stewardship and fostering positive change from within.
Special guest Jan Neiiendam from Vision Denmark will host the evening. See ya soon!
