L'histoire de la guerre 14-18 racontée au travers d'un jeu vidéo Ubisoft nous montre une fois de plus que les jeux vidéo peuvent surprendre et nous faire découvrir certains pans de l’histoire encore peu connus. Différents personnages, différentes histoires Soldats Inconnus : Mémoires de la Grande Guerre est à mi-chemin entre l’expérience pédagogique et le jeu vidéo. Au travers de cette production originale, Ubisoft souhaite faire découvrir au grand public les horreurs de la première guerre mondiale sans jamais les montrer clairement. L’éditeur a pour ce faire mis son outil de développement, l’UbiArt Framework (utilisé notamment pour Rayman Origins et Rayman Legends), à contribution. Chaque personnage sera d’une façon ou d’une autre lié aux autres protagonistes de l’aventure et tous devront veiller les uns sur les autres lors des moments difficiles de l’aventure, tirés de faits réels : le premier usage des gaz, la première apparition des divisions blindées, les tranchées, la dureté de l’hiver… Un jeu vidéo pour se souvenir Clément Kolodziejczak

TckTckTck Why Climate Change is About Water Climate change is no longer a distant or abstract threat. All over the planet the impacts of extreme weather events related to climate change are being seen and felt with increasing ferocity and increasingly serious consequences for human society. As the climate changes it is altering some fundamental systems and relationships on planet earth. That constancy and dependability now seems to be in question. Bolivia offers a window onto the lives of those severely impacted by climate change, where every year thousands of people are struggling to adapt to these new conditions of life. The impacts of climate change on water in Bolivia In this interview Bolivia’s chief climate negotiator, René Orellana, responds to the question: “What are the most important things that you want people around the world to understand about the impacts of climate change on water in Bolivia?” (Watch the complete interview)

WWF What is climate change? Global warming – doesn’t mean we’ll all just have warmer weather in future. As the planet heats, climate patterns change. It’ll mean more extreme and unpredictable weather across the world – many places will be hotter, some wetter, others drier. We know the planet has warmed by an average of nearly 1°C in the past century. What causes climate change? Burning fossil fuels Over the past 150 years, the world’s industrialised nations have changed the balance of the carbon cycle by burning huge amounts of fossil fuels (concentrated carbon such as coal, oil and gas) Breeding cattle and cutting down forests Industrialised nations have also breeding vast numbers of methane-producing livestock and cutting down the forests that naturally absorb carbon dioxide from the air. Trapped carbon dioxide The extra carbon dioxide in the atmosphere traps more of the sun’s heat, so it’s been raising global temperatures. Find out about the effects of climate change. How hot can it get?

Construis ta cité médiévale Au Moyen Âge, l'Europe est encore très rurale. Sur les terres du seigneur ou du monastère, de petits villages se regroupent autour d'une église. Pour assurer leur protection, leur seigneur a fait bâtir son château fort. La population se divise en trois groupes où chacun trouve une place et un rôle : les gens du peuple, les nobles et les religieux. Au fil de la période, les villages évolueront pour se transformer en villes. Te voici à la tête d'une simple terre pourvue de forêts et d'un donjon sur une colline.
