A lasting project, engaged and open to all!

Hosting the Olympic Games is every candidate cities wish. This major project highlights the host country. Installation and choice of sporting infrastructure is of course an important element in the organisation of the Games, but it is not the only success factor. Indeed, to ensure its proper functioning, a flagship project such as the O.G must involve all of its partners. The Paris 2024 bidding committee wants to define exactly what these games will mean and how they will be used on a small and bigger scale (Paris, Ile-de-France, France) and it will be done in consultation with the French population. A platform has been set up for this consultation. It must allow anyone who wants to, to participate in the deliberations carried out by the paris 2024 Committee when developing the Candidature project. Also, several debates will be organised around economic and environmental matters. These are not just the Paris Games, they are also YOUR Games! Each opinion is a step towards making sure that the Games are lasting, exemplary and shared among the whole of society.
