Nyasha Duri from the UK has been voted the winner of the inaugural Sustainable Worlds on Minecraft competition. Of the three finalists the 20-year old received the most votes from the viewing public, in a closely fought contest.
The competition which forms part of tvebiomovies 2016 has been supported by Connect4Climate, the World Bank Group's global partnership program that empowers people to act on climate change. Young people were invited to use the Minecraft gaming platform to design a sustainable world, and to showcase their innovative ideas on transport, food production and renewable energy.
