The Games are an opportunity for young people all over the world to demonstrate their commitment to make the world a better and healthier place and their central role and solidarity in the mission of global friendship, peaceful solutions and nonviolence. The themes of the Games support the goals of the United Nations. They educate about and show support for peaceful solutions, and aim to build global friendship and understanding. They support the improvement of human life, as outlined in the United Nations Millennium Development Goals .
The Games recognize and demonstrate the value of sport to-
- Unite, motivate, inspire and educate
- Encourage peaceful solutions and cultural understanding
- Teach essential values such as cooperation and respect
- Promote life-long health and social skills
- Improve health and well being
- Strengthen links between children and adults
- Contribute to the development of communities
Participation in the Games is free and open to all who wish to take part. Communities, civil society organizations and governments are invited to organize and enjoy the games and events in their own countries and locations, limited only by their own local constraints of financing, organizing and planning capacity. Different organizations can hold multiple Games in the same country at different sites. Participating communities and organizations select their own sites.
