Source: Koerber Stiftung The big Hamburg kick-off event on Saturday, October 10th will take place for the first time in a virtual location: families with children and young people are invited to discover the offers of Code Week Hamburg from anywhere in the digital adventure park.

Unlike in a classic video conference, the guests go from home to a specially designed virtual world. Starting from the marketplace, they can visit around 15 of the coding and maker initiatives involved on foot or by train, find out about the offers of the two campaign weeks or jointly design the playground of the future. The digital opening of Code Week Hamburg was conceived together with the Creative Gaming initiative and is the first educational event of this magnitude to take place on the free open source platform Minetest.
