Reporters Without Borders, MediaMonks and DDB set to create in Minecraft a space dedicated to the freedom of the press, and exposing press censorship. Building a giant library inside Minecraft which contains censored journals and articles, banned in several countries, thus bypassing press censorship in oppressive regimes.
24 builders from 16 countries collaborated to create the huge virtual library, which houses information on all 180 countries in the press freedom index, as well as special exhibition halls on 5 countries notorious for their press censorship: Russia, Vietnam, Mexico, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, honoring journalists who have been silenced. It is hosted on a server, allowing anyone from around the world to visit, regardless of censorship in their respective countries.
It houses several sculptures depicting the power of information for all the people.
This is this generation’s the Library of Alexandria and it’s global and free and online AND IN MINECRAFT? https://t.co/bzlwoUyvM8— Jess (@JessMickyP) June 28, 2020
