The Game Science Research Center (GSRC), in collaboration with Play - Festival del Gioco, PlayRes Cultural Association, and Game in Lab, is pleased to announce the new edition of the Play4Change award, aimed at stimulating and rewarding research, development, and use of Games for Social Change.

Play4Change is relaunched with the support of GiX, the Research Center on Games for Social Change at the University of Florence, a member of the GSRC.

Games for Social Change leverage participation and motivation triggered by gameplay to act as facilitators for a change in attitude or behavior towards topics of collective relevance, such as awareness of social phenomena, critical capacity, civil and civic consciousness, social inclusion, multiculturalism, personal responsibility towards weaker categories, and the environment.
