SPIEL.talks – Sustainability

 

The world of board games is colorful: figures, cards, tokens, markers and so much more are waiting in magnificent boxes to be taken out of their shrink-wrapped cardboard by people all over the world.

But what impact does this colorful world, which is transported from all over the globe by ship, plane or truck, have on the environment? How sustainable are games and how much ecological thinking goes into the themes of board games today? Is it perhaps even the case that our industry can positively shape the future here?

SPIEL Essen is dedicating an entire day to all of these questions and further on as part of SPIEL.talks – Sustainability.

In discussion rounds, panels, lectures and workshops, experts from the world of board games will present their topics relating to sustainability and the environment.

THE SPIEL.talks – SUSTAINABILITY WILL TAKE PLACE FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4th 2024 BEGINNING 11 AM IN SAAL RUHR IN CONGRESS CENTER EAST OF THE MESSE ESSEN.

Come by to the Saal Ruhr on the 2nd floor of the Congress Center East. Registration is not necessary, as long as there is space in the hall, everyone is welcome.


We want your topics for our SPIEL.talks!

Are you organizing exciting projects or working in the field of the environment and sustainability in relation to games? Do you have best-practice examples that you would like to present to the world?
