International Olympic Committee (IOC) President, Thomas Bach has welcomed the new slogan for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, ’Games Wide Open’. 

During the announcement, President Bach said that the aim of the Paris 2024 Games is to be as inclusive as possible and is opening up participation to all. 

“The Opening Ceremony along the River Seine, competitions held in iconic locations across the city and Paris 2024’s far-reaching engagement activities will bring people together, both within and outside the venues, in person and online.

“This approach and narrative will be key to inspiring the next generation, allowing many more people in France and around the world to experience the Olympic spirit and values. This will help leave a lasting legacy beyond the Games in 2024.”

Sustainability is an important factor in the delivery of the Paris 2024 Games. Paris aims to halve the carbon footprint in comparison to previous Olympic Games, compensate more than its residual emissions and use the Games’ influence to develop long-term carbon compensation projects.

The Olympic Games Paris 2024 Opening Ceremony will take place on 26 July, with the Games ending on 11 August. The Paralympic Games Paris 2024 will then be held from 28 August until 8 September.
