Last year Camilo Gutierrez started a BMX school project
. The first school event was actually China
but now Camilo is back in Berlin, Germany and growing the project there. His target is not only to teach the kids some tricks but rather a mindset: "At the BMX workshop, children and young people of different ages will have access to a new sport, like BMX freestyle. The main objective of the project is the social and cultural integration / participation of children and young people through the sport.
Capabilities like discipline, perseverance as well as creativity will be developed during the process to learn how to ride a BMX bicycle. An important basis for achieving this goal is the development of creativity doing sport."
There is a new facebook page
as well as a website with information in German and English www.bmxschoolberlin.com
