Minecraft: Education team created a Sustainability City Map as part of Microsoft’s update on our 10-year climate plan. The Sustainability City lessons explore a wide range of issues, including the components of a sustainable home, managing waste products, clean electricity generation, responsible forestry, and more. To help teach students, six new lesson plans were included with the map designed to show sustainable processes at work in our daily lives and illustrate some of the themes of the report.
On Earth Day an additional lesson plan on Radical Recycling was added and the map promoted on Minecraft franchise channels along with a $100K donation to The Nature Conservancy.
Although this map was designed to support educators and students using Minecraft: Education Edition, it was made available to all Minecraft players for free on the Minecraft Marketplace.
