Despite the enormous fantastic load that the story of Final Fantasy VII shows, we could say that it is an ecological story. After all, the fight of an eco-terrorist group against a mega-corporation that is overexploiting the planet and causing serious environmental damage arises.

It is not the only video game with an environmental theme in its background. In recent years there have been many titles that include climate change in their plot and in their playable mechanics: Cities Skylines, Civilization VI, Alba, a wildlife story…

Although, in reality, it is outside the mainstream where green games have exploded. And it is at the video game festival that they are committed to raising awareness about these problematic Games for Change where many of them are presented.

The truth is that esports are becoming a channel for environmental and social awareness. “I think it’s one of the easiest ways to connect with a young audience,” explains Antonio Pérez Mata, Head of Positive Impact at Kawaii Kiwis, a semi-professional esports team.

“Part of the millennials, the Zetas and even younger people… they are no longer in traditional media. So if you want to raise awareness of important issues, use new channels for fundraising or raise awareness among new generations, you have to be here.”

He talks about all this Enrique Alpanes in this article for Igluu.
