THE HIVE is a unique transmedia project: science documentary, online community and Facebook game.

Backed by some the world's leading scientists and game designers, it sets out to show how global problems can be solved by cooperation, and how games can trigger the cooperative behaviour necessary to resolve global issues. This fascinating science is the subject of the documentary. However we go one step further: THE HIVE sets itself the challenge of making a difference in the real world through online gameplay.

In this world-first experiment, we connect the virtual and real worlds via a Facebook game that changes lives in Haiti- one of the most environmentally devastated regions on earth. Trees planted in the virtual world become real trees planted to prevent landslides caused by deforestation. A crowdfunding campaign to assist our funding will be launched soon... We're excited and we hope you'll join us...
