The Finnish Red Cross’s own Minecraft server Spärrä is now open

The young volunteers of the Finnish Red Cross have set up the Minecraft server Spärrä to serve as a new type of friend visitor activity.

The idea for Spärrä was born when youths themselves were asked to think about and come up with ideas for friend visitor activities that could reach a larger number of young people.
 
The Finnish Red Cross’s Minecraft server (in-game IP address sparra.net9.fi) is now open to all players. The server allows young players to find new friends to play with, have fun and spend time in a creative environment. 
 
The game is moderated and administered by trained volunteer moderators of the Finnish Red Cross.
 
Players who access the Spärrä server can currently explore and build in Survival mode and try out parkour tracks built by volunteers. Later on we will also be opening Creative mode and adding some minigames, so there are plenty of additional activities to look forward to.
 
- I encourage all new players to come up with ideas for fun activities and things to do in Survival mode. The server is a place where you’re free to get creative with others. Everyone is welcome to join,” says friend visitor activities planner Varpu Salmenrinne.
 

Want to volunteer on the Finnish Red Cross’s server?

The Finnish Red Cross is looking for new volunteers to add to its current Minecraft server team to serve as moderators and server builders. The aim is to develop minigames on the server, among other things.
 
You can apply for a moderator or server builder position at https://rednet.punainenristi.fi/sparra. Volunteers will need to complete a short online training course before taking up their new position.
Join us in building Spärrä!
