Video games explained to parents
PédaGoJeux's mission is to make video games accessible to all, and to provide advice on how to play them safely within the family. Since 2008, the group has been helping parents to understand games and share them with their children.
For five days, you can meet the members of PédaGoJeux to discuss issues that are important to many parents: the choice of games, screen time, parental control systems, all subjects that the collective will be delighted to discuss with the whole family.

Working in video games
With ever-expanding worlds and more epic adventures than ever before, video games are synonymous with escapism, but they can also create vocations. Making a career out of your passion is a dream that can become reality today. France has nearly a hundred schools offering training in the video game and digital professions. This creative expertise is recognised the world over.
In the past, working in video games was simply a matter of programming, but now the range of professions is much broader. From creation and game design to management and marketing, you're sure to find the job that's right for you.
This year, eight schools will be present at Paris Games Week to present their different courses to parents and students.
