Epic Weekend with the Global Gamification Hackathon


This weekend we’ve been excited to take part in the first Global Gamification Hackathon with GamFed Türkiye. 48 hours with 14 teams from 14 countries with a superb who’s who of gamification experts speaking and mentoring the teams throughout.

I took part as one of the mentors, and in addition we offered tickets to the next online Gamification Europe conference to the winning team!

The teams worked on a wide range of projects, though the ones looking at sustainability particularly caught our attention, including upcycling, reducing waste and carbon saving through cycling projects.

You can view the recorded livestream of the team presentations here (which one was your favourite?):
