Habitat at the World Parks Congress

The Parks World Congress was held in Sydney this year. It is an event that occurs every 10 years and the Sydney Congress attracted more than 6,000 people from 170 countries.

We were lucky enough to speak about Habitat twice at the conference and we covered the topics of “Gaming in the Real World” and “Can technology get kids outside?”

Below is a link to the talk with a guide track. Hope you enjoying learning about how Habitat came to be!!

About habitatthegame

The world’s habitats are in danger and you can help save them. In the vein of the Tamagotchi persistence play craze of the 90s, users will undertake actions to keep an endangered animal alive. In Habitat game players will adopt a polar bear. To keep the bear alive and healthy, players need to successfully complete events in the game and undertake real world actions. By completing these TASKS players will progress through levels, increasing the health of their bear and earn badges of recognition for their efforts. Ultimately the goal is to save the world by improving the bear’s health.
