Poletne olimpijske igre v Parizu 2024 - Zmagoslavje zgodovinskih razsežnosti
Mednarodni olimpijski odbor je 13. septembra 2017 izbral mesto Pariz za gostiteljico poletnih Olimpijskih in Paraolimpijskih iger 2024. Na ta uspeh je Francija in vsi, ki so si za to kandidaturo aktivno prizadevali, zelo ponosna.
100 let po zadnjih olimpijskih igrah, ki so v prestolnici Francije potekale leta 1924, bomo z velikim ponosom lahko znova organizirali OI.
Tokratni uspeh je rezultat skupnega dela ekipe Pariz 2024, ustanovnih članic francoske športne skupnosti, in tudi udeležencev s področja gospodarstva, nevladnih organizacij, Francozov, ter diplomatske in izobraževalne mreže v tujini.

Learning from experience gained in previous bids, Paris conducted a flawless campaign, leaving nothing to chance. It built a project that was both compact and spectacular, in the heart of Paris, a progress-driven and innovative project at every level.
These Olympic and Paralympic Games will stand apart from those before them because they are in line with the core values of Paris and France, namely solidarity, sustainable development and responsibility at every level:
- Socially responsible games, at the service of people: Paris 2024 will place sport at the heart of society with large-scale sports-based education and health initiatives. The games will be 100% accessible. They were designed to accelerate social inclusion to help change society’s perspective and better integrate disabled people.
- Urban-responsible games: the 2024 Olympic Games will avoid the construction of big unnecessary buildings and leave behind structures that will be of use to the people living in the Paris region. Some 95% of the facilities already exist or will be built temporarily for the games. The only two facilities that need to be built and the 4,500 accommodations planned meet genuine needs of a rapidly growing Seine-Saint-Denis Department.
- Economically responsible games: with reasonable costs, and a majority of funding coming from the private sector, the positive economic impact of the games will be an estimated €10 billion and the creation of 250,000 jobs.
- Environmentally responsible games: with 55% fewer carbon emissions than the London 2012 Olympic Games, 100% sustainable food and 100% renewable power in the Olympic facilities, these will be the first Olympic Games to meet the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement objectives.
It is a project of monumental proportions when it comes to what has already been done and the work that awaits the Organization Committee of these Olympics over the next seven years. It is also and above all an opportunity for France to once again showcase its expertise in organizing sports events on a global scale and the chance for all sports fans to discover the extraordinary cultural heritage of our country from an original angle.
