Hello everyone,


Our GamesForest.Club team is back from gamescom and is ready to share all the excitement from last week!

It all started with a beautiful day in the woods not far from Cologne, where we visited one of our conservation projects — “German Beech Jungle”. Together with Tobias from Wohlleben’s Forest Academy, an expert in forests and nature, we learned a lot about wildlife, trees, local biodiversity, and ecology. The hiking tour lasted for 2,5 hours and inspired us even more for further nature protection and forest support.

On the following day, Maria Wagner participated in a European Video Games Society event at devcom. The event, titled Greening the Video Games Industry: Winning Solutions for the Environment, focused on what actions can be taken in the whole video game creation process to support the green transition and help combat climate change.


Then we jumped into gamescom week with our GamesForest.Pins that help to support forests in Peru, Indonesia, and Germany. Together with your help, we managed to give away 173 pins! All the donations from this initiative will go into forest protection and planting new trees. We will bring more pins to the other upcoming conferences and gaming events, so say tuned for the forthcoming updates!

We are thankful to all the guests who visited us during the conference. We are also thrilled to share that Dr. Severin Fischer, Head of the Berlin Senate Chancellery, and Michael Biel, visited us intending to protect and improve resilience to the climate crisis of forests in the Berlin-Brandenburg area.


By getting our ecological GamesForest.Club-Pins to support the German project, Dr. Fischer and Dr. Biel will help us to increase local biodiversity and create the old-growth forests of tomorrow. We are grateful and honored to have such a guest and look forward to raising environmental awareness on a political level.

Being mentioned in Xsolla’s podcast and joining a party from Altagram and Tantalus concludes our successful journey to Cologne. We are thankful to everyone who joined us at this conference, supported the forests, got the pins, spread the word, and helped us continue fighting climate change.
