Game Changer

The Embassy of the Netherlands focuses on the inclusion of people with disabilities and a flagship project is the Game Changer project. The project entails sports-related workshops by the Dutch National Olympic Committee (NOC*NSF) in collaboration with Japan Sports Council (JSC) for people with disabilities and for people who work with people with disabilities in Edogawa, Adachi and Nishi-Tokyo to create more sport opportunities for people with disabilities in these municipalities. JSC promotes the results of the project among all municipalities of Japan. The project is regarded as a social legacy project of the Tokyo Games. Since 2017, at least twice a year, Dutch experts share their knowledge and experience with regards to sport for people with an impairment with sports clubs, schools and governmental bodies in Tokyo. During COVID-19 travel restrictions in the Netherlands and Japan the Game Changer project will continue remotely through online workshops and meetings.
