On Saturday, October 22, the German and Ukrainian Go Youth played an online friendship tournament.

About 40 teachers from 15 countries gathered for the ‘Seminar on Didactics of Strategic Games’ at Cambridge University, sharing their expertise on teaching Go, chess and other games at schools. A variety of relevant topics were covered such as learning psychology, teaching methods & materials, business models of educational programs, marketing and research.
