The importance of games in contemporary society: why should conservationists be talking about games? Tadhg Kelly, What Games Are?

Published on

Tadhg Kelly´s presentation during the GamesforNature Seminar, held on 8 November, 2011 in Cambridge, UK. Find more about the event at www.gamesfornature.or

Tadhg believes that the fact that games are a popular and growing industry is not necessarily reason enough for conservationists to try and create their own game. There may be other mediums more suitable to the transmission of conservation messages, and many people who play games do not consider themselves “gamers” and have many other hobbies. However, games deliver a level of interactivity different than other mediums, and it is this that conservationists should care about.
