In June 2023, the Special Olympics World Games will be in Berlin.
7 thousand athletes with intellectual disabilities from all over the world will come to Berlin.
They will compete against each other in various competitions.
For example, in football or tennis.
In addition to the sports competitions, there is also a cultural programme.
For example, concerts or guided tours of the city.

This is what Special Olympics wants to achieve:
People with disabilities are often discriminated.
That means:
They are treated worse.
For example, because they have a disability.

Special Olympics wants to change that.
People with disabilities

  • shall get more recognition.
  • shall become more visible.

Our project for the World Games

We will do a special project for the World Games.
It is called: Berlin erzählen.
This is in English:
Telling Berlin stories.
In this project, people with and without disabilities
report on the World Games.
And they show athletes from all over the world the city of Berlin.

To do this, they have to prepare themselves well.
That is why our project started in January 2022.
Our reporters meet once a week.
They talk about Special Olympics.
Together they think about
which topics are interesting.
And they attend training sessions.
For example, on these topics:

  • How do you commentate on a sports competition?
  • How do you prepare yourself?
  • How do you film?
  • How do you edit a video?
