Games for Climate Change Education and Sustainability

The Real-World Impact Games Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University, directed by Joey J. Lee, Research Professor of Technology and Education, has been working on digital and non-digital games for educational and social impact for several years. We have created Greenify, a real-world action game that uses gamification mechanics to challenge individuals to complete real world missions based upon sustainability principles, and EcoChains: Arctic Crisis, a multiplayer card game in which players manage a food web and protect Arctic species from threats to the environment.
