The excitement for next year’s Elementary GMG is building, as Jeroen Gremmen and Roelant Wijngaards, members of the GAMES board, recently visited our hosts Bulgarsko Shkolo and 191 OU Otets Paisii in Sofia, Bulgaria.

We were very impressed by each school’s facilities, their beautiful surroundings, and most of all, the hard-work and planning done by the host teachers and their students. It promises to be another amazing experience for young people and educators to come together, from all over the world.

This event, and its location, has particular significance for us at GAMES, as it is where we first met and developed the idea for our event and organization. To be going back there, together, after 6 years and a lot of memories, will be a very special occasion.

It will be another opportunity for us to connect people through sport, education and shared culture, and to offer peace education through shared experiences, at our second event for upper-elementary children.

We already have participants confirmed from around the world, including Mexico, China, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Malta, Nepal, Germany, and Scotland, and would love to welcome more countries and cultures to contribute this unique global gathering.

We would like to thank our host for their warm hospitality and small taste into Bulgarian culture and customs, and look forward to learning and sharing much more next September. It promises to be another unforgettable experience for all involved, that will make lasting friendships and memories.

We welcome you all to join us.
