MEGA (the complete name: Moldovan Environmental Governance Academy) is the social entrepreneurial organization focused on delivering services of gamification, serious game development, gamified trainings and courses, and e-learning with environmental and social value.

MEGA represents an innovative solution for addressing the modern world’s most pressing social and environmental issues, including inefficient natural resource management, environmental pollution with greenhouse gas emissions and waste toxins, loss of biodiversity, climate change, etc. We tackle these issues through community participation and collaborative environmental governance.

The purpose of MEGA is to create an environmentally sustainable world on the basis of such positive and motivating feelings as fun, enjoyment, and optimism about the future. To achieve this we combine psychology + technology + ecology in an innovative way and use their combined advantages. More specifically, we apply gamification, open-source eco-innovations, and citizen science for granting communities the “power” to create the clean, green, and environmentally prosperous world they dream of with their own hands and minds.

MEGA Vision:

A sustainable world, where every person lives an eco-friendly life, has open access to practical learning opportunities, constructs own open-source eco-innovations, and thus contributes to sustainable development and creation of positive social and environmental impact in a collaborative, enjoyable, and fun way anywhere in the world.

MEGA Mission:

Make people’s green dreams* come true.

*Under “green dreams” we understand sustainable solutions, eco-innovations, and environmental projects / initiatives that improve both the social well-being of communities and the quality of the environment they live in.

MEGA Game: The Game with Impact


 

MEGA Game: The Game with Impact is the core product and service of MEGA that allows us together with you to fulfill our purpose and move forward towards realization of our vision. It represents a unique gamification system, where creating positive impact becomes a habit.

MEGA Game is a web platform that connects individuals, called Green Agents, and companies and organizations, called Mission Providers, and nurtures environmentally friendly habits and socially valuable behavior in them. The system does so by combining practices of psychology, technology, and ecology that are directed towards e-learning, collaboration, and real-world positive change. At the same time MEGA Game connects the on-line world with its accessibility and technological innovations to the real one with its challenges and opportunities for playing, learning and at the same time creating meaningful environmental and social impact.
