GAME was founded in Denmark in 2002 with a mission to create lasting social change through youth-led street sports and culture. GAME’s headquarter is located in the country capital, Copenhagen, where the first asphalted GAME House was introduced in 2010. Currently, GAME Denmark runs practices in four GAME Houses and in a number of GAME Zones spread across the country.
GAME Denmark operates on different programs, all with the purpose of using youth-led street sports and culture for development. The Playmaker Program is concerned with the training of volunteers in GAME Denmark, while the Danish Platform for Street Sports is supporting entrepreneurs and their street sports initiatives. In the GAME Houses numerous partnerships and project add to the impact that the houses delivers, like the Urban Music School.
GAME Denmark is also engaged in psychosocial projects, more recently ‘Friendships on the Asphalt’, which empowers children with psychosocial challenges through the means of parkour.
