Greening Games Education. How to approach environmental issues in video game-related courses?

The workshop is a multiplier event presenting of our project results so far. The event is hosted within the framework of the CEEGs 2023: Meaning and Making of Games Conference.

The leading question we want to ask in this workshop is: “What does it mean to teach “green gaming”? What should the students know and what should their instructors aim for? Should they focus on the capacity of games to inspire, raise awareness and change behaviours or is it more important to teach about ethically responsible sustainable game-making? And perhaps most importantly, why to create more awareness for and expertise in teaching sustainability in video games in the first place? We need to ask those questions in order to develop good didactic resources related to environmental sustainability in video game production, design and game studies.
