Games for Nature is a platform that promotes collaboration and research on the use of games for nature conservation purposes. Through the website and the organisation of events we seek to bring closer the people developing and exploring these kind of games. We believe games to be a critical and powerful tool in the 21st century and that feedback between people from different disciplines can allow games to be more effective.
