San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Mojang, the makers of the internationally acclaimed game Minecraft, and UN-Habitat, the UN Human Settlements Programme, have teamed up to develop a gaming tool that aims to involve young people in the planning process in urban areas. ‘Block by Block’ is based on Minecraft and gives citizens an opportunity to show planners and decision makers how they would like to see their cities in the future. The first pilot project in Kibera is already in the planning phase.
We are pleased to invite you to a free launch event on November 7th 2012 from 6-8 pm at the iHub.
