Environmental video game Carbon Runner takes a nostalgic approach to addressing a very present and problematic issue. Developed by Pew Pew Studios, Carbon Runner helps teach kids about climate change and implementing sustainable practices to make the Earth a better place.

The endless runner game lets players jump and punch as a green ninja sent to make the world a greener place to live. They encounter things that are both good for the environment (worth collecting) and bad for the environment (for punching). Quizzes and databases teach students eco facts while also helping them to make environmentally friendly decisions.

This game is a fun and interactive way to get young people immersed in important issues while still ensuring they learn loads.
