How Minecraft is being used to teach children about sustainability and the circular economy

Posted on 10th May 2021

The BetterGeoEdu project gives primary teachers the resources to teach children about raw materials, sustainability, and the circular economy while using Minecraft to do so. Minecraft is a hugely popular game where users must extract raw materials to build their own world where they then explore and try to survive.

The project has created a modification for the game called BetterGeo that transforms the user experience into a more educational one. The modification allows players to learn how important geology and raw materials are in everyday life while also integrating environmental issues into the game.
