After we were forced to postpone the planned event in 2020, Global Association of Montessori Education and Sport are excited to be able to announce that second adolescent Global Montessori Games will now go ahead, as planned, at Heltberg Privat Gymnas, in Drammen, Norway. It will now be held between Monday 13th of December and Saturday 19th of December 2021, making this our first Winter GMG.

This decision to postpone the event was made in agreement with the host school, following the advice of the local government and health authorities, but with the situation starting to improve, we are planning to take tentative steps forward.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely, but we feel it is time to look ahead and make plans, so that we may continue our mission of connecting people through sport, education and shared culture.

As before, we will be welcoming 9 teams of 6 students, 3 male and 3 female, to provide more opportunity for varied participation and a greater mix of cultures.

The teams that had confirmed for the 2020 event will have first refusal for participation, however, we welcome applications from any interested parties, to ensure places are filled.

This event is about building a peaceful and better world by practicing sports and making new friendships. Pupils, teachers and school leaders alike, will learn more about different countries, and their cultures, by working together and sharing ideas and practices.

It is not about competition or winning prizes but coming together and participating in sports in the Olympic spirit of fun, friendship, solidarity and fair play.

Again, students will be hosted by host families, who will play an important role of covering Norwegian culture and customs.
