  1. Welcome to 47th UN Inter-Agency Games in Copenhagen, Denmark

    We are looking forward to see you in Copenhagen, between 15-18th June, for the 47th edition of the UN inter-agency games. We are planning the greenest games ever, for you to join with colleagues from around the world in the spirit of the games and the UN values.

    Competitions in the traditional disciplines will be held (pool and golf still to be confirmed) and some different ones. The games will take place in Gentofte municipality in the northern part of greater Copenhagen which is about 15 min train ride from the city centre.

    The programme we are working on launches in the classical Tivoli park, and ends with gala dinner in the central old meat packing district. You will be invited to UN City, workplace for some 1,700 colleagues for a nice evening gathering, and much more.

    Please mark your calendar, 15-18th June, 2022, and we will revert with more details and information. And cross fingers that we can safely see each other next year.
