Projects – Introduction
Edutainment for Youth aims to raise awareness of civil issues and develop the social skills of young people in Iran through edutainment, including the use of social impact games. As demonstrated in other countries and contexts, new digital media is an innovative and effective way to reach younger generations.
By creating a fun, virtual world for youths to learn about issues that affect their daily lives, we believe more young people will be interested in getting involved and becoming active citizens. E4Y social games provide a cyber world that is free from political borders, seclusions and prejudice, but that is fun and engaging.
E4Y has currently developed four social impact games which address various fundamental themes of civic awareness and activities that are specific to Iran’s cultural, political and social context. These four themes are Environment, Otherness, Speaking Out, and Charitable Activities.
