ソフィア オリンピック・パラリンピックプロジェクト

The “Sophia Olympics & Paralympics Project” was established in April 2016 by members of the staff, faculty, and students of Sophia University, based on the educational spirit of “for Others, with Others.” The goal of the project is to not only work towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games but to increase opportunities for all that will lead to creating a borderless society.

The Paralympic Games recognize diversity and provide a fair opportunity for everyone to demonstrate their individuality and ability, and play an active role in society. It is an important event that will provide valuable clues to influence progress towards realizing an inclusive society.

So far, we have dispatched research teams to Rio de Janeiro, PyeongChang Winter Paralympic Games, among others. We have invited former President of the International Paralympic Committee, Philippe Craven for a guest lecture, conducted surveys on the barrier-free environment in public transportation, trained interpreters and language service volunteers, and held classes on inclusion and an inclusive society, and the Olympic and Paralympic Games. In addition, we have organized events to introduce current and former athletes.
