About us

Game Changer is an European Union grant funded project that ultimately provides training tools, field expert support and guidance to NGOs, young people and their influencers. Game Changer will incorporate two main elements; online social media campaigns led by youth and offline City Social Games. Both these initiatives will promote: tolerance, civic engagement, diversity, and inclusion in an increasingly diverse and digitally connected world.

The Game Changer Project is a partnership of NGOs working with young people, technology and field experts, media specialists and youth activists based primarily in France, Greece and Poland.
