Exploring Nature Based Games

The new wave of green gaming and playing for the planet has the potential to play a crucial role in climate action. Could nature based games also make us more curious about our physical environment, help us train to be explorers of the natural world?

Join Joe Tirado, the Strategic Director and Co-Founder of Latinx in Gaming, Michelle Olson, creator of Beasts of Maravilla Island, a new wildlife and nature 3D adventure game, National Geographic Explorer Dr. Tierney Thys and special guests as we ask the question can game design play a positive role in our relationship with nature?
