The Minecraft Event is the best way to start creating a greener city everyone can live in that works WITH our ecosystems. Ecotopia gave youth an opportunity to create a working blueprint of a sustainable eco-community world! We sent this model out to bigger companies construction companies of what we should be seeing, and together we will make a change!

 

The story of Ecotopia: once there was a beautiful city called Ecotopia that was beautiful, until large companies and people started getting greedy for resources, ultimately killing Ecotopia. Your task is to rebuild Ecotopia and create what our world should look like.

 

The Ecotopia Competition is surrounding the theme of who can build the most eco-friendly and ecosystem supporting infrastructure that is necessary for a city! This can be a park, a building, or whatever! Winners will get gift cards, eco-friendly EcoLearners merch, and eco-friendly products! Stay tuned for a giveaway!

 

Why did we build this model? We used this to work with other small startups, construction companies, and organizations to build what our society should look like.

EcoLearners Book Club Meeting

This month we read "How to Avoid a Climate Disaster" by Bill Gates! Not only does this book hold important and eye-opening information, but it also provides it in a way that's easier to understand.  ​It also gives a great way to analyze privelage and environmental poverty. 

 

We know that setting aside time to read is difficult in our busy schedules, but the good thing is that this was a really chill event! People brought snacks, blankets, and even were on their bed. We had have questions from all over the book to discuss, but focused on mainly the first five and the last two chapters. Our discussion on this book was so fun! Amazing points were brought up! Looking forward to the next book club.
