Minecraft & Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Students are invited to form teams to enter these global challenges which are to co-create sustainability challenges using Minecraft Education.
The aim of the challenge is to raise awareness amongst young children about the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. (SDGs).
The objective is to co-create worlds in which innovative solutions to SDG issues can be created by participating classrooms.
Once a challenge is co-created it will become a valuable resource for teachers to use in their classrooms.
A key feature of these resources is that they have been cleverly created so that they can be applied to solve any design thinking challenge across the SDGs.
The pilot will involve a selected team of students and mentors to create a world in which flood mitigation solutions can be tested. This issue is a Sustainable Cities (SDG 11) target.
Utilising the Minecraft Worlds created in the Global Goals Challenge teachers are able to run project-based lessons involving Minecraft Edu. These lessons can be delivered in class or online.
