Skate United

Skate United

James Kelly

Skate United's goal is simple - bring skateboarding to refugee camps across Europe. Skate United's inspirations steams from Europe's migrant crisis where there is the largest migration of refugees since WWII. Using skate/longboarding Skate United aims to bring a moment of escapism to young asylum seekers. Ultimately, Skate United has goals to be an assimilation project. Europe has the newest generation of Refugees, and their lives have been politicized and stereotyped since the start of their journey. Skate United would like to bring refugee and local children together. Skate United's goal is to host sustainable weekly skate sessions across Europe's refugee centers. Starting with simple skate sessions, growing to integrate the local youth.
