Launch of Ecoworld on Tuesday 29 April, 2008
The Consumer Council and CCEA are helping young people understand how the consumer choices they make today affect all our lives and environment with Ecoworld - a unique new web-based game launched on Tuesday 20 April 2008. Ecoworld is designed to help young people start good habits early so that making responsible choices about the food we eat, the energy and water we use, how we travel and the waste we create become second nature.
World-famous botanist and environmental campaigner, Professor David Bellamy, OBE, Martin McGuinness, Deputy First Minister and star of Ecoworld, Eco himself helped launch the game at W5. The event included Eco’s guided tour of his online home developed by CCEA plus dance and drama from St Louise’s Comprehensive College, Belfast.
