In our online event series "Gamecity Impulse" Gamecity presents talks and discussions about the topics of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. In our third session Manuel Manhard will discuss how to build a respectful and caring gaming community.

Competition, rage, toxicity, and memes might seem more typical of gaming communities than kindness and mutual respect. However, several Community Managers recently focused on fostering comfort and positivity among their players - and they have been convincingly successful! Let's explore the diverse challenges and approaches of building friendly, helpful and accepting communities: for a better gaming experience, and even enhanced welfare beyond that.

Manuel Manhard from the initiative “Keinen Pixel den Faschisten" will share his insight and thoughts in his talk titled “Gaming Communities: Competetive and Caring”. After the talk there will be time for a Q&A round and open discussion of the topic.

The talk is the third session in our online event series Gamecity Impulse. In this series Gamecity Hamburg presents talks and discussions about the topics of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion with regard to games, the games industry and gaming culture.
