Everyone must contribute to the efforts to save the planet, and the huge community of gamers is a force that can not be ignored. More than 2.3 billion people around the world play video games. These people are not just children and teenagers, but come from all walks of life and age groups. Only 22% of gamers are under the age of 21, and almost half are women, according to Rappler

Many game developers are already helping to combat pollution and other environmental issues. Minecraft, the best-selling game of all time, has introduced a number of worlds in which students can explore the climate crisis. Called Climate Futures, the lessons include farms and virtual forests, as well as information on how climate change is affecting ecosystems, economies and communities.

Pokemon, a very popular gaming franchise, introduced in 2019 the Corsola pokemon, which draws attention to the problem of coral bleaching. Moreover, on the occasion of Earth Day, special sustainability campaigns were available in the game. Players were encouraged to take part in garbage collection or volunteer in the field of environmental protection.

In September 2019, several companies in the industry launched Playing for the Planet Alliance at the UN Climate Summit. The alliance includes 40 companies whose games reach over 1 billion people. The companies promised to include environmental issues and elements in the products developed, to encourage recycling and to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide or other hazardous substances.

Only 20% of electronic devices - such as laptops, video consoles or mobile phones - are currently recycled. For example, Sony has promised to streamline its popular PlayStation consoles in terms of power consumption.

At the same time, gamer communities have been heavily involved in two recent donation campaigns, which have raised money to protect forests and marine ecosystems.
