What is Game Changers?

Game Changers is a competition for young people who want to change the world and believe games are a way to do this.

Young people all over Ireland submit games based one of these three themes: Climate Justice, Human Rights or the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Games can be a board game, card game or video game.

Due to Covid-19, this year’s Game Changers was changed to a Home Challenge Competition. The closing date for entries was June 30th.

Check back here soon to see the winning games.

Game Changers – Hunt For Human Rights

Over 80 games were entered into the inaugural Game Changers competition in 2019. Board games, card games and online games were submitted from primary, post-primary and youth groups. These games explored themes such as human rights, the plight of refugees and the challenges of delivering aid to countries affected by poverty.

Each game was assessed by the judging panel on the following criteria: understanding, empathy, innovation and effort. Twenty-two games were shortlisted and showcased at the competition final, which took place in DCU on the 15th May 2019.

These 22 groups of young people and their teachers enjoyed a hugely energetic and colourful event. The judges were wowed by the standard of gameplay on show but the final say on who took home the title went to the entrants themselves. Each group voted for their favourite game. The winning game was announced as “Hunt for Human Rights”, a fantastic game created by Loreto Secondary School, Balbriggan. Their prize was to present their game at the International Educational Games Competition in Denmark.
