Redhearts.org has launched and everyone is invited to help lay the foundations. The best place to do that is in our community subreddit. Please inform yourself and others. Please read the about page too! If you don’t like what you see there – stop reading now. It will save you the embarrassment of being ignored by those who care and choose to act.
Redhearts.org is about coming together to be part of the solution in the global climate crisis. It is not about pointing out how individuals are imperfect in being part of the solution. There will be no cancel culture. We’re all human and canceling denies us the opportunity to learn from each other. We need to cultivate a positive error culture.
We will however point fingers at the industry and companies to demand immediate action! We will always strive to do this in a way that reflects the level of respect that the individual companies have for the environment and people that make, play and love games.
Redhearts.org exists as a force for positive change in gaming. We fully support unionization, diversity, and anti-predatory-monetization initiatives. We add sustainability to the list of changes we want in gaming. Redhearts.org is not here to be a brand for these changes. We support and learn from the efforts, successes and struggles of other initiatives. This is not a place to discuss whether human made climate change is real. It is!
My personal next steps are:
- Make sure we have the right tools (subreddit, redhearts-wiki)
- Reaching out to people with a connection to games
- Asking lot’s of people for help
- Listening and supporting
- Grow Redhearts
We’re going to need experienced Reddit mods and wiki contributors.
