Welcome to Foundation for Digital Game Culture
We are the foundation of the German games industry and an ambassador for games and their opportunities. Since our founding in 2012 we are initiating projects and programs highlighting the manifold ways games can contribute to society. Our non-profit and nationwide acting foundation goes back to an initiative of the German Bundestag (the national parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany) and the German games industry. Partners from fields such as administration, education, culture, media, pedagogy, politics, child and youth protection, science and civil society take part in our projects, events and studies. An equally diverse council ensures our purposeful, independent and transparent work. game – The German Games Industry Association is our shareholder.
We believe in a society that shapes digital transformation with the help of games and acknowledges games as an enrichment to its culture.
We are building bridges between the world of games and political and social institutions in Germany. As an ambassador for games we illustrate what can be achieved by applying the ideas, mechanics and technologies behind games for the common good.
We set topics, highlight opportunities and accelerate ideas to illustrate the potential of games in the fields of culture, education and research. We do so by developing new and innovative formats, events and research approaches.
