The Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 are “right on track” – that was the message delivered by the IOC Coordination Commission this week following a visit to the French capital. Optimisations to Games delivery, meticulous budgetary planning and increasing engagement were highlighted as key to advancing Games preparations. During the meetings, the Coordination Commission, chaired by Pierre-Olivier Beckers-Vieujant, received an insight into the growing sense of anticipation in France, boosted by the launch of Paris 2024’s slogan – “Games wide open”. Increasing interest in Paris 2024’s engagement programmes reflects this excitement.
Club Paris 2024 now has over 800,000 members, while Terre de Jeux 2024 includes more than 3,200 community projects, reaching more than 33 million people across the country. Updates on Paris 2024’s extensive sustainability strategy, aimed at delivering climate-positive Games, were also provided.
