Problem

Our research and experience indicate that environmental and sustainability organizations face a number of project management challenges. These challenges, which lead to suboptimal outcomes, include:

- lack of collaboration and coordination between organizations in implementing projects;

- information asymmetry and limited personnel capability;

- lack of transparency and rigour in the monitoring, reporting, and verification of environmental projects and their outcomes.

MEGA Game is a specialized project management tool to manage environmental projects and fieldwork collaboratively within a global community.

By using MEGA Game, our customers, including environmental organizations and Green Tech companies, can manage their projects, engage volunteers, educate people, monitor progress and impact achieved, and report to stakeholders.

Mission and Vision

MEGA Mission: Connecting people for a sustainable future.

The purposeof MEGA is to change how sustainable development is done these days. Instead of working with symptoms of environmental / social issues, we target the roots of these issues and resources (ideas, solutions, talents, etc.) needed for resolving them. In such way, we serve ascollaboration-enabling platformwith the set of modern technologies necessary for system change in sustainable development.

All this is done in a collaborative space and in a fun, engaging, and motivating way due to elements of gamification integrated into the platform.

  • Transparent monitoring and reporting of positive impact achieved by project teams and volunteers through the use of audits and distributed ledger technology.
