As a way of engaging a younger audience in its activities, Greenpeace is devoting a section of its site to educational and politically loaded games.

The collection of games blend visual cuteness with hard-core activism, such as the 'Stop Whaling!' game in which the objective is to board a whaling ship in order to protect whales from being harpooned (Although nobody is credited, Futurefarmers looks to be the creative minds behind some of the games.)

Greenpeace is also engaged in strategic activist websites for older target groups, such as which is a playful visualization tool that exposes Exxon Mobil's funding of supposedly independent' organizations that work against solutions to climate change.
