ALL INCLUSIVE

 

We compete for inclusion, not for success.


Some lines are hard to cross. Especially those drawn in our minds. ALL INCLUSIVE tells a story about those who try to tear down borders between people living with and without disabilities, aiming for real inclusion.

 

When athletes take part at the Special Olympics competitions their goal is not to win but to participate in society and to forget about those lines. Five of these athletes from all over the world practice and prepare to qualify and ultimately to participate at the Special Olympic Summer Games 2023 in Berlin.

 

Sports and the inherent interaction with people without disabilities have a strong impact on the personal growth of the athletes participating at Special Olympics. It shows itself in an enlarged self esteem, sharpened skills to interact with their surroundings and a higher capability to perform better at work and in their private lives. But is this enough to fulfill the dream of real inclusion?
