Zenergi, the energy and environmental consultancy that aims to make a positive difference in the world of energy, has launched a totally free new browser-based game, called Climate Crisis.
The organisation that works closely with the education sector has launched the game in response to the growing interest in children and young adults in the topic of climate change. In the game players help a virtual community to become part of the green revolution. Players can make improvements to the community that reduce its climate impact and increase the happiness levels of its residents before 2050, when time runs out and the game ends. Successfully answering quiz questions and demonstrating your knowledge earns more coins and improves a player’s chances of topping the leader board.
Zenergi’s Chief Executive Officer, Graham Cooke, says: “We work with our customers to practically reduce their carbon emissions in support of their journey to carbon zero, but it’s today’s children – the energy users of tomorrow – that not only understand the crisis we’re in, but really want to affect change. We hope that many children will enjoy playing our game whilst learning along the way.”
The game was launched at leading education body the Institute of School Business Leaders’ (ISBL) virtual National Conference. Its Operations Director, Bethan Cullen, says: “Children are really passionate about the critical issue of climate change. We’re pleased to see our partner, Zenergi, embracing new media to engage children in the classroom and raise awareness of the urgent need to take action. Climate Crisis will be a useful resource to support teachers with various aspects of the curriculum.”
In Climate Crisis players can learn what really makes a difference to the environment we live in – to understand the steps needed to reduce their own carbon footprint. The game can be played here: https://climatecrisis.zenergi.co.uk/
