Executive Summary

EarthGames plans to build a video game called 60 Second Sustainability(60SS) for mobile phones and tablets that educates students about many sustainability actions they can take on campus, while promoting and building bridges among RSOs.  We seek to educate a new audience of students about sustainability actions they can take, and spread the word about campus organizations.  The cost is $26,043, which will go to student managers and a professional game developer on staff with EarthGames.  The game will be made available for free to download for mobile devices, and shown in a variety of tabling settings and events across campus.  The game, which recently won the Audience Choice Award at the UW Sustainability Game Jam, will consist of many 5-10 second "microgames" played in quick succession, which allows us to introduce many sustainability concepts in a short period of time.
