Game_JamGame Jam: a concept that brings together game designers and game enthusiasts for anywhere between 24 and 72 hours with the purpose of planning, designing and creating a game. Since they started more than a decade ago, Game Jams have been going on regularly, all over the world often with specific themes.

Recently at Wikimedia Deutschland in Berlin, there was the Free Knowledge Game Jam; where participants were  challenged to create a game that makes use of publicly accessible free and open licensed data and/or tools. A concept with far reaching impact, not only for game makers but for society as a whole.
Today on the program, we’re walking around the Free Knowledge Game Jam learning about these talented participants and their unique projects.

Although there are many examples where social entrepeneurship is just a buzz world or a marketing tool, in Berlin, within the startup world, there is a strong emphasis on running a business that does some good for the world. Spend any time talking to founders and CEO’s of startups in this town and chances are you will hear how they both meet their needs as a business and as a part of a community or society.

Today on the program we explore Social Entrepeneurship done the Berlin way, or running a successful business while making a difference in a community/society. And to do that we bring you two experienced voices, Fabienne Riener of Source Fabric, and Evgeni Kouris of Toywheel and Gamewheel, who will help describe how they see and navigate this combination, in this town, at this particular moment in history.
