JED For the Community + 60 million girls Foundation

March 22nd – 24th


Create4Good is driven by two main objectives:

  1. Develop offline concepts for an open-source game on climate action tailored for children in developing countries.
  2. Foster new relationships and networks among NGOs and groups worldwide to encourage collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and the rapid development of innovative ideas and actions.

Design an offline video game concept that addresses the following:

  • Educating players on climate change and global warming, and how it impacts the areas they live in. 
  • Offering solutions for resilience-building and mitigation.

Target Audience

Who are we creating for? 

  • Children aged 8-17 in the Global South.
  • Varied educational backgrounds and abilities, including those not in school or with limited literacy.
  • Settings: rural, often isolated, fragile communities.

Challenge Guidelines

Your team will be responsible for submitting the following by 2:00 PM on Sunday, March 24th.  

Deliverable Description
One-pager A one-pager summarizing your game concept.
Report An in-depth report detailing your game concept. The report should be created in a slideshow format. If your team is selected as a finalist, you will conduct a 10-minute presentation of the report.
Proof of concept (optional) A proof of concept may be developed by your team showcasing how the game could look. This component is optional, however, we strongly advise you to submit a proof of concept as it will award your team bonus points during the judging stages.
