Abstract

In Greece, climate change is projected to have detrimental effects, disrupting agricultural production, wildlife species, public health and economic standing. Studies have shown that increasing education can help combat climate change. The goal of this project was to develop serious games about climate change as resources for the Environmental Education Centre of Eleftherio-Kordelio and educators throughout Greece. Using a knowledge survey, observations, and other forms of assessment, we developed, tested, and refined 6 serious games with 185 students. These games, along with 8 others, are presented in a booklet that can be disseminated to Greek educators.
