12/3-2020GAME closes down all activities due to COVID19
In support of the authorities’ recommendations and global precautions regarding COVID19, all four GAME Houses in Denmark are closed, all employees work from home, all travels are cancelled and all events and practices are paused, until further notice.
The world in a very serious situation due to COVID19. The most important thing for all is to help slow down the spread of the coronavirus and protect those who are particularly at risk of getting seriously ill from the virus.
GAME takes this very seriously and therefor fully supports the authorities’ recommendations by shutting down all four GAME Houses in Denmark, asking employees to work from home and pause all events and trainings.
By shutting activities down and asking staff to work from home, GAME hopes to contribute to alleviating pressure on health care systems in the countries we operate.
GAME management and staff are in dialogue with donors and partners regarding any short-term implications for activities and programs. Now more than ever, we remain committed to our mission of building a more inclusive and sustainable world through youth-led street sports.
At the time, it will not be possible to reach the office phones at HQ or in the four GAME Houses. Therefore, please go to game.ngo/staff to contact GAME staff directly per phone or e-mail.
GAME is directly targeting communication to our many young volunteers to support them in advocating for accurate knowledge and behavior in their communities. All of our volunteers are youth-leaders and take extra pride in being a role model. Since most of our volunteers work in underserved communities where accurate information doesn’t always reach the target groups, their role in alleviating this threat cannot be underestimated.
GAME staff and partner in other countries continue to adhere to national guidelines and measures put in place at local level.
GAME urges everyone to support local authorities’ recommendations regarding COVID19 to slow down the spread of the coronavirus.
For more information you are recommended to seek guidance at your local authorities website.
