6 - 17 March 2018

The Programme entails an integrated series of educational services and is an excellent opportunity for knowledge sharing and hands-on experience for organizers of future Paralympic Games and other major sporting events. It has been developed in close collaboration with the Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (PyeongChang 2018), aiming to highlight Paralympic distinctive operations’ elements and to give Observers the opportunity to gain invaluable first-hand experience and insight into various operational aspects of the Paralympic Games.

The IPC Academy is constantly striving to further enhance the content and quality of the Programme using modern and proven educational methods in each edition. Based on the success of the previous IPC Observers’ Programmes and the valuable experiences gained in the past editions, for PyeongChang 2018 we have designed a Programme with a combination of different types of Activities. The aim is to ensure that diverse individual and organisational needs will be met and that the benefits of observation will be maximized.

Apart from the enhancement of the educational methods, the variety of themes has also been significantly increased since the first programme editions. The variety of Activities of the upcoming IPC Observers’ Programme in PyeongChang 2018 includes:

  • Site visits, including all competition venues and the most important non-competition venues
  • Presentations from key PyeongChang 2018 Managers and from IPC staff and experts across a large variety of subjects
  • Thematic sessions focusing on a client group experience or on a topic with significant Games management value, combined with relevant visits conducted in a suitable venue
  • Informative workshops
  • Possibility to conduct own observations based on individual interests and needs, using access privileges
  • Opportunities to meet members of other organizing committees and sports organizations, for networking and sharing experience and information
  • Moreover, the IPC Observer’s Manual is provided, to facilitate observation.

This App has been created by the IPC Academy in partnership with World Academy of Sport.

It is packed full of information such as Schedules, News, Biographies plus much more!
