About Kids Building Future Healthy


  • By: VicHealth in partnership with Monash University

What: a Future Healthy initiative using Minecraft Education Edition encouraging kids to get involved in building healthier futures. 

When: 2023 - current

Where: Across Victoria 

Why: We know that young people aged 9-12 years have been hugely impacted by the pandemic - and to develop better solutions to the challenges we’re facing in communities, we need to open up the conversation and hear from kids.
