Flying Friends is the Christmas gift you were looking for!



Green Steps

Short summary:

Christmas is coming but this year we want to help you in finding the right present for your child! Get to know Flying Friends and learn about birds while having a lot of fun!

Still looking for a climate positive Christmas present or something to spend long winter evenings with family and friends? We have got you covered and proudly present Flying Friends. Learn about the most common birds in your home bioregion in the most entertaining way!

Why should you get a Flying Friends set for your yourself, your children or your students? 
There are three good reasons:
1. a new understanding of planet Earth.
2. a proven method to move new knowledge into your long-term memory.
3. a great way to learn about birds in two languages.

After last year’s publication of our first edition about the birds of the Changjiang Plain Evergreen Forests (PA50), we now add a second edition about the birds of the European Interior Mixed Forests (PA12). Use the OneEarth map to learn more about these bioregions, which cover many important cities in China and Europe like Shanghai, Hangzhou, Wuhan and Berlin, Lyon, Warsaw.

Flying Friends is currently available in Chinese / English and German / English. A German / Turkish version for bioregion PA12 is under way and we are eager to get feedback from European players to add additional language packages like German / Polish or German / French. New bioregion editions are planned for next year. So, stay tuned for updates or reach out to us to create your own version.

We distribute the game through our offices in St. Pölten and Shanghai. Send us an email to

In a joint effort between environmentalist David de Rothschild and Hyundai Motor Cars, Seoul citizens were invited to the REWILD YOURSELF project. Here, city dwellers were able to step out of their busy indoor city lives and into a forest-like natural environment to experience its impact on them. Some visitors said it took them right back to their childhood….. find out more details through the interview below.
