Science is not about why. It’s about why not.

Create games with us!

Eko Game Jam is where game artists, programmers and environmental experts come together to create fun games utilising environmental data provided by The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, Ministry of the Environment, Finnish Environment Institute and other partners.

Eko Game

This mobile game prototype is created by art guru Petri and game jam guru Samuli specifically for eko game jam. They will also be joining the first jam as mentors. The prototype inspires game jammers to use ecological data and information provided by Sitra and our other partners.

Have you ever wanted to show players how much damage the exploding cars and crashing buildings create in terms of CO2? Well now, The Environment Institute can help to add a carbon calculator into your game!
