At this year’s Gotland Game Conference, the Department of Game Design at Uppsala University is hosting an international summit for game educators, and inviting all game educations to participate.
This is a first meeting to start work towards a European alliance of game educations.

HEVGA’s mission is to create a platform for higher education leaders which will underscore the cultural, scientific, and economic importance of video game programs in colleges and universities. The key is to create a robust network of resources - including unified advocacy, policymaker engagement, media coverage, and external funding - in order to incubate and harness the impact of this community in a 21st century learning environment.

How does this translate to an international scene? How do we build a network of resources that are valuable by country, across institutions and across borders? 

At the Game Educators Summit 2017, we initiate the discussion on what an Alliance of Higher Game Education could look like, with a focus on providing actionable goals for building towards a platform that supports us all: a unified advocacy, a media amplifier, taking local achievements global, a better way to secure funding and a network that recognizes the cultural, scientific, and economic importance of game educations in colleges and universities.
