Skateistan, Afghanistan

by | Oct 9, 2013 | Asia, Interactive, Residential

We spotted this on the Urban Times and had to share!  

Skateistan is a new community tool using skateboarding as a way to empower young people on the streets of Afghanistan and more recently Cambodia. It makes sense. If we want to engage young people we need to connect with them in a young way. Watch the Skateistan movie here and read more about the program here.  

Also watch this great video from Detroit Ride It Sculpture Park – building skateparks to build community.
