It is a education programme developed by the Agitos Foundation, the development arm of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), to spread the Paralympic values and the vision of the Paralympic Movement to young people throughout the world. The name ‘I’mPOSSIBLE’ is inspired by an iconic moment from the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games. During the Closing Ceremony, the word ‘Impossible’ appeared floating from the roof the stadium. Paralympic Rowing champion Alexey Chuvasev climbed a 15-meter long rope to reach the top of the lettering and dropped an apostrophe between the letters ‘I’ and ‘m’, changing it to ‘I’mPOSSIBLE’ and showing the world that people can achieve anything they want.
※ The Japanese edition of I’mPOSSIBLE was developed by the Nippon Foundation Paralympic Support Center and the Japanese Paralympic Committee in collaboration with the Benesse Foundation for Children based on the contents in the international edition.
The Japanese edition of I'mPOSSIBLE includes 14 lesson plans (units) for primary schools and 12 lesson plans for secondary schools, with all the supporting teacher and learner resources necessary for each session.
