The Paralympic action 'I am Possible' attraction for the youth of Japan

Inspiring the next generation of Para sport fans got underway in Tokyo, Japan, where students at the Shinho primary school learned just why ‘impossible’ is only a word. Created by the International Paralympic Committee’s (IPC) development arm the Agitos Foundation with the support from the Nippon Foundation Paralympic Support Centre and Japanese Paralympic Committee, I’m Possible was launched in February as a toolkit of resources designed to engage young people between the ages of 6-12 years in the Paralympic Movement.

More than 40 students from the sixth grade took two classes; one where they learned about the Paralympic sports and the next where they got to experience sitting volleyball in front of representatives from the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education, Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee and Japan Sports Agency, as well as a large number of media.
