MEGA (the complete name: Moldovan Environmental Governance Academy) is a social entrepreneurial organisation focused on delivering services of gamification, serious game development, gamified trainings, and e-learning with environmental and social value.
The focus of MEGA is on implementing innovative solutions that address the most pressing environmental and social issues in the world. We succeed in realizing these solutions and in helping other organisations do it through gamification, gamified education, citizen science, and collaborative environmental governance.
The purpose of MEGA is to change how nature conservation and sustainable development are done these days. Instead of working with symptoms of environmental and social issues (planting trees, cleaning up waste dumps, etc., which we also do as part of various MEGA projects), we target the roots of these issues and mobilize resources (ideas, solutions, talents, etc.) needed for resolving them. In such way, we serve as collaboration-enabling platform with a set of modern information technologies (gamification, e-learning, and other) necessary for systemic changes in environment protection and sustainable development.
A sustainable future, where every person and organisation contributes to nature conservation and sustainable development through creation of positive environmental and social impact in a collaborative, innovative, enjoyable, and fun way anywhere in the world.
Connecting people for a sustainable future.

MEGA Game: The Game with Impact – a collaborative platform for managing environmental projects within a global community.
MEGA Game is the core product of MEGA that allows us together with environmental organizations and Green Tech companies to fulfill our purpose and move forward towards the achievement of our vision. It represents a unique collaboration-enabling platform with elements of gamification that connects people for a sustainable future.
MEGA Game works as an advanced project management tool specifically for environmental projects and fieldwork. By using the platform, environmental organizations and Green Tech companies (called Mission Providers) connect with volunteers (called Green Agents), engage and educate them, research existing environmental issues, manage their environmental projects, monitor progress, display positive impact achieved, and report to stakeholders. All this is done in a collaborative space and in a fun, engaging, and motivating way due to elements of gamification integrated into the platform.
Key advantages of MEGA Game include:
Combination of virtual engagement with real-world impact: MEGA Game is not another virtual environmental game or social network for environmentalists. It is the tool to collaboratively identify and resolve environmental issues in the real world and learn from this practical experience. Therefore, while many activities are carried out online on the platform, the environmental issues are taken from the real world, and this is where the challenges are being dealt with.
Technology and elements of gamification: In MEGA Game, we have integrated the technology of gamification, serious game design, and social willingness to play. Now the platform uses them to engage and motivate its users, give them immediate feedback on their performance, record their achievements, and empower them with interactive project management tools to make meaningful and valuable positive impact.
Global reach with local focus: MEGA Game can be accessed from anywhere in the world where internet connection is available, which gives it potential for rapid scaling and global reach. Certainly, not all communities experiencing environmental issues have access to internet and are able to post these issues. For such cases, local organizations serve as connection points between these communities and the virtual space of MEGA Game, and post issues on their behalf.
These and other advantages of MEGA Game allow environmental organizations and Green Tech companies to create and manage successful environmental projects collaboratively and in a fun way. In turn, this contributes to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and creation of an environmentally sustainable future.
