Games for Change is celebrating its 13th conference this year, but how close are we to transforming from a movement to a self-sustaining industry? 

 In this interactive Town Hall will provide an overview of what we have accomplished, and what is left to achieve to build the games for change community into a sustainable industry.

Former White House Senior Advisor for Digital Media, Mark DeLoura will frame the issue and present examples to draw on. Representatives of companies on the vanguard of building the impact games sector will highlight their efforts in supporting this transformation. And Q&A with the audience will open the session up to an important community-wide investigation of where we are as a field and what we still need to do to grow the industry and ensure that the good work that harnesses positive power of games continues to flourish for years to come.
