The SelfDesign Minecraft Community was created to offer a different gaming experience for children in an environment where they already hold enthusiasm. With their interests guiding the growth of our servers, we have created processes and adopted plugins that support our two main goals as a community: 1) To build community, and 2) To have fun.

We focus on creating agreements that foster relationships and communication over strict adherence to rules. The children create the expectations and they have created what it means to build community in their way and on their terms. They negotiate an ingame economy, private and shared spaces and restitutions that help build connections. Every potential problem is reframed as an opportunity to gain understanding.

Within this framework, the children share their personal and collaborative creations, reflect on what they have learned, and enjoy each other’s work and company. Come join us and learn about Minecraft, the SelfDesign Way!

For more information, be sure to see our SD Minecrafters' blog, too!
