online game to promote Yorkshire Dales

An online game promoting the Yorkshire Dales National Park and raising awareness of the effects of climate change has been launched.

The game, created by Sense Internet, supports schools teaching key stage two and three, but is also fun for other users.

The game which can be found here works on a snakes and ladders style with environmental questions to test players.

Sense Internet's managing director, Aidan Cook, said: "We saw an interactive game as the most cost efficient way to engage web users of all ages and help them think about the effects of climate change.

"The outcome of the game depends partly on a throw of the online dice, echoing the real-world situation of the risky economic and environmental climate we're living in at the moment.

"The game also addresses related issues such as litter and recycling, all of which, alongside predicted higher temperatures, can impact on the dales."
