Future Delta 2.0 (FD2) is a place-based educational video game on climate change, co-designed and tested with teachers and students in British Columbia’s Delta School District. FD2 enables real-life exploration of students’ neighborhoods and promotes learning of climate change causes and impacts, while also allowing students to interact within a virtual community to find sustainable alternative solutions. Please visit www.futuredelta2.ca for more information on the project and to download the game for free.
