Can we overcome the handicap and language barriers, and create a sport that everyone can share?
What if you could share the fun of sports with everyone, including those who can not see, listen, speak?

Panasonic Center Tokyo held an event with Olympian and Paralimpian to think about the future way of sports on April 13, 500 days before the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, together with young changemakers acting to establish more inclusive society, "MIRAIGENGO"project and "Braille Neue" project.

Through the event, the participants experienced the world of who cannot see, listen and speak, and discovered the new way of sports for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
If everyone considers each other, it may be possible to realize a sport that any kinds of people can enjoy.
