Children Utilize Gaming Platform To Tackle Humanitarian Challenges [Future Of Gaming]
KooDooZ is a social network that empowers children to tackle humanitarian challenges, gain service credit and earn both rewards and recognition for their efforts.
In our research for PSFK’s Future Of Gaming report, we noticed a growing tendency towards games being used To Solve The Unsolvable. One example of this trend is KooDooZ – a social network that empowers children to tackle humanitarian challenges, gain service credit and earn both rewards and recognition for their efforts. Players select from a list of social challenges and identify actionable steps they can take to affect change in a given time frame. Each challenge is associated with a badge, allowing gamers to generate public profile pages which are visible to friends & family and can be used to invest in the social entrepreneur. As children utilize the platform to raise money and build awareness around their cause, they may additionally receive gift certificates to iTunes and Amazon and earn credit towards the US President’s Volunteer Service Award. KooDooZ’s stated mission is to empower kids at an early age with strategies for creating change, helping turn everyday challenges into lifelong, recognizable achievements.
