Championship Prompt:

Over the past 9 months, we’ve seen wildlife roam free while people isolate to stay healthy. Whales have changed their migration patterns due to fewer ships, sea turtles have laid record eggs on beaches empty of humans, and wild monkeys have taken over city streets. These stories cause us to wonder: what if we could redesign our human environment to accommodate the animal world: what would it be like if animals could still roam free within human environments?

Your challenge is to design and build a space in Minecraft: Education Edition that supports a healthy environment for both humans and animals. Choose between designing a school, home, work or public space, and select a biome or habitat.

Extra Credit: Incorporate one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
