THE 10 PRINCIPLES OF THE GENERATION GAMES

The Generation Games is based on a few simple principles. These attractive elements are visible during every Generation Games edition in the world.

1

IT’S FUN!

Above all, sport and play should be fun. Children, parents, grandparents love the Generation Games! Sporting together, intergenerational teamwork. In a relaxed, non-competitive atmosphere. Participants of all ages enjoy this pleasant and positive ambiance.

2

MULTI-PURPOSE

The event serves a purpose. Actually, more than one purpose! The event has several objectives: in the field of community impact, education, social, health, inclusiveness. All connected in a logical way. Leading to inspirational legacies, lasting and measurable effects.

3

INTERGENERATIONAL TEAMWORK

Generations can learn a lot from each other. The event is about solidarity between generations, in a positive, uplifting way. Recognizing that people at every age are of much value. During the preparations, and during the event itself.

4

FLEXIBLE

Set up your own edition. Each city can decide on the scale of their edition: number of sports, number of days, number of participants: you decide! Each hosting city adds a local flavor to the  Generation Games creative concept, making it tailor-made.

5

IT’S SHARED!

Creative framework is available for any city around the world. No fee. No bidding procedure. Leading principle is ‘sharing’: every city being able to organize an edition and positive community impact. You can simply use it!

6

DO-IT-YOURSELF!

By and for the community. Preparing the event together is part of the fun! Fresh ideas connecting with valuable experience. Local expertise and enthusiasm by students, senior citizens, and others. Partnerships over sponsorships. Shared + easy = do-it-yourself.

7

THE CITY AS URBAN PLAYGROUND

Editions take place in the city center. The city itself chooses the location in the city center: the main square, a park, using connecting streets. A unique environment for the participants.

8

FOR EVERYONE

People of all ages take part, regardless how fit they are. The event is inclusive, everyone will feel comfortable in participating. It’s about collaboration, not about winning.

9

LOW BUDGET

Every edition can be realized with almost no budget. This is made possible by co-creating, barters with various partners (like local, national and international sports organizations and NGOs), no license fee, and availability of designs and creative format.

10

INTERNATIONAL

Each edition is ‘local’, the impact is global. All city editions together contribute to a positive movement. Cities become part of a growing ‘family’ of hosting cities.
