A solidarity ticketing service

The PARIS’23 – Para Athletics World Championships are meant to be accessible to all.
This is why, since June 2022, a solidarity ticketing system has been set up.
The principle? All people for whom access to leisure activities represents a financial obstacle (school groups from disadvantaged backgrounds, young people with disabilities, etc.) can register by contacting the organizing committee.
The committee will find companies or sponsors interested in financing these solidarity tickets. A helping hand for solidarity that contributes to sport for all.

Meetings Handisport & Employment

Since the beginning of the year, the French Handisport Federation has been organizing Handisport & Employment meetings in each department of Ile-de-France. These meetings allow the setting in relation between companies partners of the World Championships, and candidates in situation of handicap in search of employment, via the networks Cap Emploi, Pôle Emploi, big associations Handicap, without forgetting the Handisport licensees.
These days are an opportunity to establish links by practicing sports together, to develop a close relationship, and to discover each other in a unique and playful way around various challenges. At the end of these days, some duos will be selected to come and spend a day at the World Championships, the opportunity for them to step on the track of the famous Charléty stadium and to discover the backstage of this unique event.
On Tuesday, July 11, in parallel with this initiative, a job forum dedicated to people with disabilities will also be offered by companies, including some partners of the event. The recruiters present will offer internships, work-study programs, fixed-term contracts or permanent contracts… No less than 200 candidates are expected!

The entertainment and awareness village

A village will be set up throughout the competition inside the stadium’s corridors. Every day, the general public will be able to take advantage of numerous animations and workshops to raise awareness of the different parasports and environmental issues. Young and old will also have the opportunity to exchange with athletes, who will go every day on the village, to meet the enthusiasts.
