Gaming for a Better World
Today, over 3 billion people worldwide play video games, which span a hugely diverse range of form and content, with the industry generating more than US$ 180 billion a year in global revenues – about seven times as much as the global music industry.

FOGGS will be hosting a virtual panel discussion titled ‘Gaming for a Better World’ on Wednesday, 29 June at 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Brussels time.

In this panel discussion with leading figures in the video game industry and a peacebuilding specialist, we will explore the different types of narratives coming out of the gaming world and their current and potential impact on societies. In particular, we will discuss whether and how story telling through video games can contribute toward building a more peaceful, inclusive and sustainable world.

Panelists -

Asi Burak: Chief Business Officer at Tilting Point, a world leading game publisher, and Chairman of Games for Change (G4C).

Latoya Peterson: CXO and Director for the Culture at Glow Up Games, and race and culture writer for major media outlets.

Helena Puig Larrauri: A peacebuilding professional and co-founder of Build Up, a global non-profit addressing emergent challenges to peace.
