If you are trying to get young people engaged and interested in green issues like climate change, this successfully crowdfunded environmental game could do the trick. Developed by Strange Loop Games, 'ECO' is a sustainability-focused video game that is designed to teach kids how to address global warming.

The collaborative simulation game is geared towards middle school age children. Players work together to build a sustainable civilization and then have to protect the ecosystem. The environmental game even allows them to propose policies and laws that must be backed by supporting data in an effort to protect their virtual world.

While other educational video games exist, this one tackles a very specific issue and gives players a chance to learn about real world approaches while still flexing their imaginations.
