Host Town Program

The world as a guest - in our country and in our hearts

Prior to Special Olympics World Winter Games in 2017, over a three day period we are going to show the athletes the most beautiful sites of our home. Together we are going to arrange interesting introductory programs and allow very specific and individual insights into our world. Cities, towns and regions are invited to actively participate as hosts and to allow encounters of the very special kind.
