But what is the World Game Day?

Far from being a drop in the ocean, the main aim of World Game Day is to enable everyone to play. Raise awareness of the value of play for children and adults, of social ties, and of play as a cultural object and an essential activity in children’s development.

Its values are : Freedom – Free – Accessibility and diversity
