Project Description:

TOPA Project aims to foster friendship, the spirit of encouragement, and unity in diversity through learning about the Olympic & Paralympic Games, especially their values. Following the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games and 2022 Beijing Winter Games, join this project for the 2024 Paris Summer Games. The Olympics: July 26 – Aug 11, 2024. The Paralympics: Aug 28 – Sept 8, 2024. Participants learn about the Spirits and Values of the Olympics and Paralympics. They can also present works on well-being in Sports, Art, Music, or Sustainability. As in Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022, we will get together again before the opening of Paris 2024 to appreciate all student outcomes and presentations given live by middle/secondary school students. TOPA will potentially continue for the upcoming Games.

Previous topics included: the preservation of our oceans, rivers and access to clean water; species in danger of extinction and emblematic wild animals; traditional dishes and cooking; handicrafts, former trades, fashion and traditional clothes; educational progress and access to education for girls; landscapes and beauties of nature (coastlines, volcanoes, deserts); and arts and religious architecture (temples in India).
