The esports organisation’s top players will compete to inspire youth audiences to be active in sustainable living

 

Guild Esports today announces a new partnership with the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s Difference Makers campaign, to create a sustainable and environmentally neutral Fortnite esports tournament.

The closed tournament will combine Guild’s top Fortnite talent, content creators and ambitious students who are part of Guild’s world-first esport Academy, in a competition that aims to spotlight the importance of a sustainable culture.

Competing in a normal PVP match with a twist, competitors will be encouraged to chop down as many trees as possible. With a ‘tree-o-meter’ to track their score, every tree felled in-game will be replaced with the planting of a real world one by Difference Makers. Furthermore, the estimated carbon footprint of the tournament, resulting from PC gaming and streaming, will be offset to ensure a net zero environmental impact.

Guild’s championship winning stars Hen and Anas will be joined by content creators Gee Nelly and TN25, to take part in this once in a lifetime event, which will be streamed on Guild’s Twitch channel on 27th August at 5pm. Within the tournament, participants will also discuss transferable skills and how a love of gaming can be a gateway into the world of STEM.

Guild’s Director of Partnerships Michelle Tierney said “By working together with Difference Makers, we’re ensuring that sustainability is at the heart of this tournament. The Difference Makers campaign not only demonstrates that gaming can be green, it also  shows us how the visionaries of the world can be found in unexpected places.

As an esports organisation, co-owned by David Beckham, we understand the importance of an academy structure and the educational benefits for young people as they’re developing. We’re proud to be educating the next generation with the skills to understand the critical importance of sustainability for our future”.

IET President Professor Danielle George MBE said “The future scientists, technicians, engineers, and geeks who might one day save the world are likely to be found today – in front of their consoles. With STEM and sustainability so integral to modern life, we’re proud to be creating the world’s first Fortnite tournament where players are fighting for more than just the win; they’re also fighting to make a positive impact on the world around them.”

In the lead up to the inaugural Global Esports Games, the Global Esports Federation Board has approved and established an inclusive Team #worldconnected to compete in Singapore in December 2021.

Team #worldconnected is an ensemble team of gamers and athletes who represent refugee communities, persons with disabilities, wounded servicemen and women, and other underserved communities.

“The Global Esports Federation was built to convene the world’s esports ecosystem. We believe in creating a #worldconnected where everyone has a place and feels that they belong. Team #worldconnected is a great opportunity to uplift members of our community who otherwise may not be able to take part in our flagship Global Esports Games. This initiative showcases the unlimited reach and power of esports,” Chris Chan, President of the GEF, said.

Esports and gaming has shown its potential in bringing people together – building dynamic, multi-faceted communities across geography, gender, and culture. As a values-based organisation anchored on the universal principles of equality, fair play, diversity, inclusion, and innovation, the GEF hopes that Team #worldconnected will inspire and provide opportunities for people to be part of an inclusive global esports community where everyone is welcome.
