Good news for the millions of Minecraft’s gamers across the globe and for the planet too! Take the challenge “Making peace with nature” and off we go!
UNESCO is joining Minecraft on the ‘Global Build Challenge 2021: Making Peace with Nature’, as part of its programme to engage students worldwide to address the urgent environmental crisis through education for sustainable development. The Global Build Challenge 2021 will run from 27 September to 19 November 2021 through the videogame Minecraft: Education Edition and allow students to learn about the Sustainable Development Goals, chat with different creatures living on our planet and explore how to shift lifestyles to start living sustainably. The challenge aims to trigger creative ideas on how to change our habits and participate in designing more sustainable, fairer, and healthier societies, in harmony with nature.
