The ‘SDG#12 GAMIthon’ is one of the 3-year Jockey Club Sustainable Campus Consumer Programme events, aiming to promote responsible consumption and production. Using hackathon as the framework, the core idea is to co-create fun and educational solutions through applying gamification in a sustainability context and bring the solutions into the Hong Kong community and beyond.  

Supported by the academia of the tertiary institutions and gaming consultancy in Hong Kong, the participants can gain valuable insights on the key issues on sustainability and gaming framework, thus creating a gaming product that appropriately delivers the message about doing more and better with less.
