There are many “barriers” in the world. To overcome them, we need “Change Makers” who are willing to act to better the world. What barriers are they trying to overcome?

Panasonic has solicited “ideas that break down barriers in sports and technology” from students around the world at the time of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, “SPORTS CHANGE MAKERS Final Presentation” was held on Monday, August 23.(JST).

Under the theme of “Going Beyond Barriers,” qualifying rounds were held for students in four cities (Tokyo, Japan; Beijing, China; Paris, France; and Los Angeles, USA) that are scheduled to host future Olympic and Paralympic Games. After a rigorous selection process, representative teams (one from each region) were selected in January 2020.

In the Final Presentation, each team presented their ideas that they had been working on for about one and half year to the Olympic and Paralympic organisations(IOC, IPC, Paris 2024 Organising Committee that will host next summer edition of the Olympic Games after Tokyo) and celebrities from the world who participated as advisors. Prototype demonstrations co-created by Panasonic and its partner companies with students for each idea were displayed on both the real venue and the virtual venue, and the attendees were able to experience the ideas in action. Through this project, Panasonic supports the dreams of students who aim to have their ideas adopted in the future sports scene.

The event is archived, so if you missed it, please have a look!
