The Spe­cial Olympics World Summer Games will take place in Berlin in 2023. On Janu­ary 30, 2020 the organ­ising com­mit­tee and the inter­na­tional Spe­cial Olympics fed­er­a­tion signed the Games Agree­ment for the largest inclus­ive sports event in the world at the German Pres­id­ent’s res­id­ency. PRO­PRO­JEKT has accom­pan­ied Spe­cial Olympics Ger­many and the Berlin Senate from the begin­ning of the bid­ding pro­cess on and will now also sup­port the organ­ising com­mit­tee.

The Spe­cial Olympics World Games are the flag­ship event of the Spe­cial Olympics move­ment, which stands for equal­ity, tol­er­ance and accept­ance for people with intel­lec­tual dis­ab­il­it­ies all over the world. The event is char­ac­ter­ised by nine days of cap­tiv­at­ing and inspir­ing com­pet­i­tions between approx­im­ately 7,000 ath­letes from 170 nations in 24 sports, where the sports activ­ity of people with intel­lec­tual dis­ab­il­it­ies and uni­fied of people with and without dis­ab­il­it­ies is the focus of atten­tion. A com­pre­hens­ive pro­gramme in the fields of sci­ence, health, edu­ca­tion and cul­ture accom­pan­ies the sports com­pet­i­tions. In addi­tion to the Olympiapark, Messe Berlin and other renowned Berlin sports venues, the entire city is to become a meet­ing place for people with and without dis­ab­il­it­ies to anchor inclus­ive living in people's minds. A Ger­many-wide pro­gramme on inclu­sion aims to improve every­day life for people with intel­lec­tual dis­ab­il­it­ies beyond the event.

PRO­PRO­JEKT, as the pro­gramme man­age­ment unit of the organ­ising com­mit­tee, is respons­ible for the over­all con­trol and mon­it­or­ing of the plan­ning and imple­ment­a­tion pro­cess as well as the inter­face man­age­ment of the Spe­cial Olympics World Games 2023.
