What is Paralympic Movement?
The Paralympic Movement is athlete-focused. Through athletes’ stories and achievements, attitudes towards people with an impairment can be changed. They engage and motivate people to create a more inclusive society. The Paralympic Movement builds a bridge which links sport with social awareness to help forge a path for this change and spread the message of respect and equal opportunity for all individuals.
