Young people influence young people: Virtuos opened its fourth Green IT Classroom in China
On April 6, 2023, with the warm spring breeze, the fourth Virtuos Green IT Classroom in China launched at Sichuan Modern Art School in Chengdu. The school provides art education for children with a wide range of interests, as well as more possibilities for children's future life. On the opening ceremony, young students performed to express their welcome of Green IT Classroom and gratitude to the young volunteers from Virtuos Chengdu Studio.
After the ceremony, volunteers from the Virtuos team shared a happy moment with the students. They prepared interesting coding classes and imaginative handicraft classes for middle school students, as well as relevant lectures for high school students. This activity broadened students' horizons and made them feel more interested in learning. Students also actively participated in the activity, each of them opened their imagination and created wonderful decals.
As a company committed to creating a diverse and equal cultural environment to help women grow and develop, Virtuos volunteers intended to encourage young female students to find their "beauty of capability" and artistic potential. Before these activities, in order to better interact with the students and enliven the atmosphere, the volunteers also prepared some courseware to share with the students, such as "Plant in the game, life in the game", etc.
For high school students, there was a chance to have a face-to-face conversation with business executives on the day. Both the Regional Manager and one Director shared their life experiences with the students. Starting from philosophy and mechanism of game designing, they showed the magic of “algorithm” that is the key to keep games always attractive, and also encouraged these young students to try to integrate such expectations into their own learning and lives in the future.
The sharing session soon came to an end, but students kept on asking questions and their words became more thoughtful. In the end, a student said: "You did not use podiums and textbooks for your sharing, and we felt so close with you!" Another student also mentioned: "Your sharing as a father also made me see the love of my parents." The sharing of two leaders allowed these students to be "seen" and also helped these students "re-recognize" themselves!
“Our school has just moved to a new campus, and there is no funding to build IT classroom. Thanks to the Green IT classroom provided by Virtuos this time, it has solved the school's urgent needs. It also brought a different class to our students, and they benefited a lot.”
_School Principal
We would like to thank Virtuos, our long-term partner and its volunteers for all the support and contribution to Netspring Green IT Programs. We will continue to help more groups, so as to maximize the social impact of the program. Looking forward to more people joining!

Virtuos Sharing women empowerments in the game industry with university students

On March 31, Virtuos Shanghai Studio organized a grounded campus talk themed "The Power of Women Behind Games" with students of IFA Paris at Shanghai University of Engineering Science. General Manager of Virtuos Shanghai Studio gave an in-depth analysis of how women can demonstrate their competitiveness in the workplace, and also tried to help students realized that beauty does not distinguish between industries. Behind a good product must be the integration and application of cross-industry knowledge. Meanwhile, university is the learning of basic skills for students. No matter which industry they go to in the future, they need to learn again.


Virtuos is committed to creating a diverse and equal environment to help women grow and develop. In the coming years, they try to increase the percentage of female employee, as well as increase the proportion of female executives in the company. In order to achieve the goal, the company will try to provide more job opportunities for women, not only pays for equal work, but also flexible working ways for female employees, and enhances women's fulfillment sense of career and family.
