Default Minecraft used for civil planning

Minecraft empowers people to change their block

Minecraft has many purposes.

Quote:
In 1965 the Swedish government decided to build 1 million appartements in areas outside of the major cities, which nowadays is referred to as the ‘The million programme‘. Today these housing projects are in urgent need of restoration and modernization.

What does this have to do with Minecraft you may ask? Well, one corner stone of the ‘My Blocks’ project is to give the people who live in these areas the opportunity to be part of shaping their future neighborhood. That’s where Minecraft comes into play; giving people a tool to visualize their ideas of how they want to change their part of town.
