Operation Climate Control launches at Muslim-Jewish love-in
Posted Sep 12 2008 10:22am
Last night I nipped down to the House of Commons for the launch of a new kids' green game, Operation Climate Control. Phil Woolas, the new minister of state for the environment, was called in to big up the game and did a good job - it was his first official appointment - though he'd clearly been briefed five seconds before and hadn't played it. The game isn't out 'til later this month, but a group of Jewish and Muslim teenagers played it yesterday afternoon in a mini competition. The two all-girl groups who came out on top were, for the record, 'Ozone' and 'OC Cool'. Nice to see the girls beating the lads at a computer game. SalaamShalom recorded the whole event, so you should be able to hear it on their online radio station's Listen Again page soon. 06/07/07 update: the game's live now here.
