Street sports in Denmark, reaching groups in the community that others can’t reach


This is the title of the presentation that Søs Bondo, Project Coordinator, Danish National Platform for Street Sport will be giving at the seminar Grow Your Community Sports Enterprise. This seminar will be held on 23rd September at Timber Lodge, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.

This full-day interactive seminar will focus on how to grow your enterprise delivering community sport and physical activity, engage better with community partners, increase your income and raise your profile in the communities you serve.

Søs Bondo’s presentation will be based on how an increasing number of children and young people demand a looser organisation and a less elitist community where they can enjoy sport. Young people want a flexible framework, where they have influence and where the view of sports and activities focus on; the social element, shared values ​​and multiculturalism rather than the elite. Over the past decade, street sport proved its worth by activating this group of young people. This has been achieved by creating significant results with few resources. Street sport offers a great potential for the future generations of active Danes. That is why we today have The Danish National Platform for Street Sport (GADEIDRÆT). It is a platform that supports the young street sport entrepreneurs and consulting Local Authorities and the of sport establishment

The Danish National Platform for Street Sport is a platform for all who are passionate about street sports. The platform aims to develop and disseminate street sport throughout Denmark. Though financial support, knowledge sharing and consulting The Danish National Platform for Street Sport support the street sport, so its social, health and creative potential benefits as many people as possible. More precisely, the goal is to reach 100,000 children and young people through street sports.

Søs Bondo says, “I love the culture in the street, I’m no athlete, but I like shooting some hoops and meeting new people at the local skatepark. We are all so busy with jobs, home and the social life that a solo run or an hour at the local gym is the easiest way. But where are the social values in that? I believe in the social and flexible street sport to be the future.”
