Keynotes by Ivan Marovic discuss the positive traits of video games and the use of strategic and nonviolent means to promote social connectivity and social change. Marovic is the founder of Star Hill PR and a video game producer at York Zimmerman Inc. Marovic's position at York Zimmerman Inc. has allowed him to teach activists that through nonviolent means, social change can be mobilized.

This initiative is aimed towards younger generations who are often influenced by what they hear, see and play.
