Students on the You & CO2 workshops create their own digital fictions on the theme of climate change. At the end of the third workshop, we ask them to submit their games to the project, so we can see what sort of themes and facts they’ve picked up over the course of the workshops. Because our workshops are only 1-2 hours long, many students have not yet completed their games by the time they submit, but we invite them to re-submit when they have finished.

Here we present a sampling of some of the most promising games we’ve received from students so far.
