Started by UNESCO in collaboration with Indian government, the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development aims at building a more peaceful and sustainable world. To deepen our understanding about how to work towards this, the MGIEP and NASSCOM are working together to conduct the MGIEP Gaming Challenge.
The challenge is open to developers around the world, and the goal is to make gaming experiences based on peace, sustainability and global citizenship. Developers must submit a detailed game design document as their entries that include the various milestones they intended to meet during the development of their games.
Funding of up to $1,000,000 will be provided to the selected team based on the milestones that they meet, along with the professional mentorship of the UNESCO MGIEP Gaming Jury. The game will become the MGIEP’s pilot game on education for peace, sustainable development and global citizenship – being showcased by UNESCO at global platforms and conferences.
Entries to the challenge will be open till the 14th of December 2014, and are open to game developers, students of game development and design, indies and startup gaming studios.
