Play. Talk. Change. (PTC) is a youth-led initiative from the None in Three (Ni3) research Centre focusing on developing pro-social games as a means for violence prevention in India, Jamaica, Uganda and the UK. The conference is being organized by young people in each of these countries.
Through PTC, Ni3 research centres are empowering young people to speak up against violence and to share their insights on the processes, the challenges and the potential of creating research-driven, pro-social computer games to end violence. You can expect high profile keynote speakers and showcases of the Ni3 video games.

About the Ni3
Ni3 takes its name from the statistic that 1 in 3 women worldwide will experience gender-based violence (GBV) in their lifetime. Ni3's mission is to make this 0 in 3. They do this by bringing together social science researchers with game developers to create innovative, interactive, anti-violence computer games. At the heart of Ni3's work is the certainty that young people have the power to change the world. By working together with the next generation we can build a future free from GBV.
Thank you for your interest in our work.
