This fun and engaging game is free to play and challenges students to build their own sustainable city by balancing five themes: food, nature, energy, transport and resources, whilst inspiring them to think about green issues. It is designed to show students how they can create a cleaner, healthier and more ‘sustainable’ future for our cities and the planet – all with the help of Shaun the Sheep. It can be played on smartphones and tablets in 28 versions: one for each EU country, and in any of the EU's 24 languages.

As teachers, you will find a number of teaching resources (linked below) associated with this game that will help you learn how to play Sustainable Shaun with your class. Available in English, these resources include lesson plans, picture cards, specific problems to solve and more. There is even a log in system so your class can start playing the game in school, save where they have got up to, and then pick it up at home on any device.
