PhD candidate Inez Harker-Schuch and Will Grant discuss the challenges of teaching climate change to children in a new article for The Conversation

A possible solution, “CO2peration” is an interactive, online game they developed along with a team of programmers, artists and animators. It teaches climate science to children in a politics- and emotion-free zone. 

The team are now urgently seeking crowd funding – if you’re concerned about climate change, please visit the Kickstarter campaign to help make this important initiative a reality.
