With support of Coca-Cola Russia

A key factor for sustainable development is human centricity and support of the local community. In 2022, Kazan will host the Special Olympics World Winter Games. How will this major humanitarian event, which Russia is hosting for the first time, affect the development of inclusion? Does inclusive infrastructure exist? Can the economy and business be developed through social projects? Why is the legacy of Special Olympics important to the country and how will the global event play out in the new reality?
