August 2020 has been a landmark month for Planet Earth Games.

Like everyone, we have been seriously effected by the pandemic both personally and professionally. We share the grief with families who have prematurely lost loved ones and sympathies with those for whom the pandemic has brought hardship.

It was foremost in our minds that for our re-modeled virtual Planet Earth Games, it was free, accessible and enjoyable. It was important for us bring some silver lining into people’s summers. We hope, in our small way, we achieved that.

This was the first time we have hosted an event virtually and we were blown away by the response to our month of daily challenges. The spirit of our participants all across the UK and beyond shone through the pandemic brilliantly.
We have set out to encourage people to live more active, sustainable lives and we hope we have made – at least – a small difference in the lives of our brilliant, inspirational participants this past month. We will definitely be back with more challenges and activities in the not-too-distant future.
