Diversity and Inclusion
Ingenium strongly believes that inclusivity requires social and cultural diversity. This will be achieved by increasing equity group representation (including persons with disabilities, visible minorities, Indigenous peoples, those who represent gender diversity, and women) as part of all our initiatives. Ingenium is committed to ensuring an accessible experience for all.

Their proposed game offers users the opportunity to make small changes with big impacts on climate change. The cross-platform application invites players to explore environments in Canada from coast to coast as an animal character and learn about the threats to their survival due to climate change. Through gameplay, they have the power to change the habits that are ruining their habitat.
