The 2016 Global Unity Games have been, without a doubt, the most outstanding Compassion Games to date. Below you can view the almost unbelievable results as an aggregate of every team and player that reported in the 2016 Games.
To appreciate the results of the Games more than quantitatively, we filled a Prezi “presentation canvas” that details who participated, what they did, and the impact and outcomes of what they accomplished! To get a quick, high-level overview of the canvas we put together a short video you can view here!
The Global Unity Games last for 11 days: they begin on September 11th and end on September 21st. This year marks the 15th Anniversary of September 11th and the 35th annual International Day of Peace. In 2001 the International Day of Peace took place on 9/11. Earlier, the UN General Assembly had decided that the International Day of Peace should be permanently observed on September 21st starting in 2002. Our colleagues at We, The World looked at Peace Day moving from September 11th to September 21st and were inspired to launch 11 Days of Global Unity as a time to promote and celebrate compassionate action around the world.
There are many ways that individuals and teams can play, from organizing creative service projects to give back to one’s community to performing acts of kindness to promote unity of the human family. All players will receive an Agent of Compassion mission to use each day of the Global Unity Games, offering meaningful, tangible ideas and inspiration for activities as a way to play. Players then report on their activities on the Compassion Report Map. The reports of Registered Teams are reflected on the Global Unity Games Scoreboard, displaying the number of volunteers, number of hours served, number of people served, and the monies raised for local or global causes.
