Beijing 2022 Release Olympic and Paralympic Educational Materials
The Beijing Organising Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (Beijing 2022) released the Chinese version of the Olympic Values Education Programme (OVEP) toolkit and I’mPOSSIBLE toolkit, with the support of International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Paralympic Committee (IPC).
The OVEP toolkit is a free educational resource, created by the IOC, to share knowledge, promote Olympic values and facilitate the sustainable development of Olympic education. It provides students with various educational activities, and teachers with teaching resources as well as practical training. Its Chinese version includes The Fundamentals Manual – a sport-based programme; Delivery Playbook – a practical guide to Olympic Values Education; Activity Sheets – exercises to support Olympic Values Education; and Workshop Plan – a learning programme through physical activity.
Meanwhile, the Chinese version of the I’mPOSSIBLE toolkit’s based on the core toolkit and supporting resources developed by the IPC. It aims to spread Paralympic knowledge, promote social inclusion and encourage teenagers to develop themselves around the Paralympic values of courage, determination, inspiration and equality. It’s composed of Handbook and Activity Sheets.
In cooperation with the Chinese Ministry of Education, Beijing 2022 will bring these educational materials in 627 Beijing 2022 Education Demonstration Schools and 1,036 Winter Sport Programme Schools. With the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games’ approaching, more schools are expected to participate in OVEP and I’mPOSSIBLE and benefit from these resources.
The newly released materials will provide inspiration for additional localised materials, and all the educational materials will become Winter Olympic and Paralympic legacies for China, to carry on its Olympic and Paralympic education after the Games.
