As part of employee volunteering, officials in Gdańsk created a unique motivational game. The player jumps over the board from day to day to take up challenges, help others and have fun. There are 31 tasks waiting for participants to take care of health, relationships or the environment. The project is an initiative as part of the Hour for Gdańsk campaign, which took place on October 13.

Play and take care of yourself and others

As part of the Hour for Gdańsk, volunteers from the City Hall created a motivational game. Its aim is to draw attention to the little things that can be done for yourself and others, taking care of the psychological comfort, the planet and the other person. Through play, the authors want to attract attention and encourage reflection on everyday habits, show various social possibilities of help and encourage discussion. The game is also supposed to encourage people to volunteer through play. The board is attached.

How to play?

The game consists of 31 fields. Each field is one day and one challenge to do or think about.

1. Print the board, hang it on the cork board

2. Invite your friends to play

3. Set the pieces at the start (e.g. sticking pins) and start on October 1

Employee volunteering – because e it is worth helping

You can also act and help in your workplace. Employee volunteering has been operating successfully at the Gdańsk City Hall for 4 years. The committed employees have had many successful aid and support actions for the residents and non-governmental organizations from Gdańsk. Volunteering at workplaces is the activities of volunteer employees for the benefit of others. Those involved use their skills, while developing talents in other areas.

Volunteers from the Municipality Office will be happy to share their knowledge and good practices on how to create such an initiative at work. We encourage all interested parties to contact us by e-mail at
