Why play games?

lpc_11-11-09smClimate Change is a complicated issue that interweaves diverse themes such as science, politics, economics, human behaviour and social policy.  Rather than resorting to traditional teaching methods in schools, Climate Change offers an ideal opportunity to use simulation games in groups.  Learning through participation and interaction with others can offer a welcome change for students, and provide a memorable experience that touches on other issues.

We have developed two games so far that support the education programme in schools and the feedback has been tremendous.
