Games for Change was founded in 2004 by Benjamin Stokes, author of the book Locally Played: Real World Games for Stronger Places and Communities; Suzanne Seggerman, a public speaker and adviser on new media and social impact; and Barry Joseph, an expert in digital engagement. Its mission is to use video games for social good and is based on the ability of gaming to teach people history, new skills, and more without necessarily being branded as “educational.” Today, this nonprofit proves games' power to create social change.
