In the Commissioner’s extensive conversations with young people, we have heard that gaming and esports is an area in which they would like to see more resources
provided at the local community level.
Young people often speak to me about the value gaming offers them as a ‘connector’ to their social community, as a confidence building opportunity and a way of expressing their creativity.
Given the importance young people place on gaming and esports as a recreational activity, it is not surprising then, that they want to see more schools and communities establish formal gaming clubs, organised and operated in the same way as clubs
for other recreational activities.
