Our game, SEvEN: Seven Voices, One Future, highlights Minoritised Ethnic people’s voices and the importance of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) on the sustainable futures of Scotland. SEvEN is co-created by the University of Glasgow (Urban Studies, Games and Gaming Lab), Education Evolved Ltd., Ethnic Minority Environmental Network, and the Floating Designer. This academic-industry-community partnership underpinned every step of the development of SEvEN. The game was inspired by a shared sense of urgency to highlight Minoritised Ethnic people’s perspectives and the importance of Traditional Ecological Knowledge on Scotland’s sustainable future. These perspectives are often missing in the public and media discourse around Net Zero targets and decarbonising industries. The game serves as a creative way to invite people across Scotland, and beyond, to reflect on what a sustainable future truly means and for whom. We are passionate about amplifying the voices and actions within Scotland's Minoritised Ethnic communities. The authentic and genuine representation of real people and communities was central to the design of the game. As a player, you will be immersed in a virtual recreation of the Western Scottish Highlands, set in 2045. You will discover seven narratives about Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and real-life climate actions led by Minoritised Ethnic-led organisations and initiatives. The seven characters you'll meet are all voiced by and created in the likeness of real Minoritised Ethnic people across Scotland.
