Talking at the Intersection of Games and Sustainability

Posted on June 23, 2013


Paula Owen, Science Musuem, Lates - Climate explores a sustainable view of the word, usually with an extended interview (last week Nicole Foss told us that politicians who promised growth were deluded or lying, the week before, Bill McKibben said “If 1 degree warming melts the Arctic, we’re fools to be experimenting with the earth to find out what 2 degrees will do”).

This year, at CHI 2013, I recorded nine major interviews.   Two of these we’ve used as half of a four part series on the interplay of gaming and sustainability
