We need your help to learn about active travel across the area and invite all Minecraft players to help customise our world.
There are two ways you can help us:
We need to find out about good and bad things about your everyday journeys. Do you scoot to school, pedal to the park, walk to work? Tell us about what you enjoy and what you find challenging about these journeys by marking them in our Minecraft world.
Once you've thought about your everyday journeys, you might have great ideas of how improve them. Let your imagination run wild in Minecraft. You might want to show us ideas for new paths and routes, design signs for across the area, or invent whole new modes of transport.
We will keep an eye on how our Minecraft map develops over the time that this project is running, but it would be great if you can share screenshots of your customisations with us!

We've created two servers that you can join, to explore and customise your local area in Minecraft. The game is available in two different versions; Java and Bedrock. Java is available on PC and Mac computers, while Bedrock is available on Xbox One, Windows 10, iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch.
To join this server on Minecraft Java, copy the address below. When you load your game, click 'Multiplayer', then select 'Direct Connect'. Then paste or type in the server address into the text box, and click 'Join Server'.
To join this server on Minecraft Bedrock, copy the address below. When you load your game, click 'Play'. Select 'Servers' from the menu at the top of the box, and then click 'Add Server'. Enter the Server name as 'Active Streets' and paste or type in the server address in to the next text box. You can then select 'Play' to join the server.
We ask that everyone who joins our servers follows our Server Rules. We wan't to create an online environment that is safe and fun for everyone.Read our Server Rules
When you first spawn in our servers, you should appear close to the entrance to Portobello High School.
To help people find other places across the Minecraft world, we have created a list of coordinates below, of schools and points on interest that you might like to visit.
Brunstane Primary School: 800 75 620
Duddingstone Primary School: -975 60 35
Portobello Beach: 460 40 -750
Portobello High School: 125 80 430
St. John's Primary School: -470 50 -50
Towerbank Primary School: 175 40 -775
You can use commands in Minecraft to take you to specific coordinates. The same command works in both Java and Bedrock versions of the game.
To warp to a coordinate you enter:
/tp x y z
For this code, x, y and z refer to the coordinates of the location you want to warp to. So for example, to warp to Portobello Beach, you would enter:
/tp 460 40 -750
