“The games will be an opportunity for the city,” said the director before representatives of different organizations with an international scope.
With the presence of Gianna Cunazza, Director of the Pan American and Parapan American Games in Santiago 2023, a panel entitled “Sports as a key investment for the inclusion of people with disabilities” was held in the framework of an event organized by the Banco de. Development of South America.
The meeting was also attended by the Minister of Sports Alexandra Benado, via video, and representatives of the financial company, UNESCO and the International Paralympic Committee.
The case served to highlight a pilot project to be carried out in the Chilean capital that will measure the impact of Para sport on the participation and quality of life of people with disabilities.
“Organizing games like this requires a lot of effort, thousands of workers, dozens of infrastructure projects, a lot of transport capacity, in short, the use of public resources, etc. “Every city that undertakes a project of this magnitude must think very carefully how the Games become an opportunity for the city, far beyond a sports festival that lasts 20 to 30 days,” said the director.
