Educational games for asthma, cystic fibrosis and COPD – co-created, open source and free!

Update posted by Breathing Games On Dec 19, 2016

We are moving forward!

The documentary A new Economy was presented at Windsor International Film Festival in November. Different screenings will be organized in Montreal and Switzerland. The film is distributed collaboratively, you may also host a screening.

We also hosted two game jams and an open-source hardware workshop in Montreal to create a mobile app with educational games on asthma. This includes a game to self-assess one's lung function through a peak flow test.

Concordia University and Sainte-Justine university hospital in Montreal also granted us CAD 15000 to organize five game jams in 2017, three keynote speeches on non-exclusive innovation, as well as focus groups and hardware tests to validate our breathing games and devices! Keep posted on our Twitter and Facebook accounts!

In France, we presented a project to host game jams about Cystic Fibrosis to Federation Hospitalière de France. We are in the finalists and will receive the answer in a few weeks.

In Switzerland, we started to organize the next game jam, which will take place in Geneva during the Lift:Labs.

We also applied to a Google Foundation grant and to a Canadian Institutes of Health Research grant to further develop the commons. These funds will enable to develop the infrastructure inculding a distributed database, to host co-creation events, keynotes with international speakers, and to mobilize a community of contributors to ensure we have interesting educational and therapeutic games, and qualitative guidelines that enable everyone and everywhere to use and adapt our free/libre technologies.

From August 5 to 7, we organized a game jam with Sainte-Justine university hospital, The Lung Association, Sensorica, and Concordia University. Read the summary and hear what participants learned during this two-days event dedicated to asthma.

A new Economy, a 85-minute documentary starring Breathing Games and six other initiatives was released in September.

In the last months, we also took part to different events incuding the ACFAS congress, the European Cystic Fibrosis Society conference, the World Social Forum, and the International Symposium on Open Collaboration. Our initative also became a signatory of the United Nations GlobalCompact, and a member of the Open Source Initiative. More about these on our timeline.

From February 10 to 12 February 2016, we hosted a Health GameJam during Lift Conference, one of Europe's key events about Innovation and Digital Tech. This was made possible through a collaboration with the Swiss Game Center and Geneva CF Foundation. The event took place at the Centre International de Conférences de Genève, located just off the Place des Nations (United Nations).

During three days, 20 designers, developers and musicians improved the game Heritage, conceived a narrative story (Les aventures du Briand) and a space game (Bloïd). A fourth team brainstormed on the Open socio-economic model, with the support from leading experts such as Alexandre Osterwalder (Business Model Generation).

Videos as well as a short documentary from Swiss broadcast RTS to come. Images on our website.

Thanks to all participants and to the organizers !
