Block by Block is a charity that is a partnership between Mojang and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat). The goal of this charity is to involve young people in the planning of urban public spaces.[2]

The goal of the partnership is to upgrade 300 public spaces (places and areas that are open and accessible to all citizens, no matter if they are male or female, where they come from, their race or how much income they have.) by 2016. Examples of public spaces include places such as parks, squares, and plazas, streets and roads that provide for pedestrian access and commercial places, such as markets.[2]
