Youth Voice Journal Special Issue (2011) – The youth perspective on the London 2012 Paralympic Games

From the Youth Voice Journal archives comes the Youth Voice Journal Special Edition 2011 – The youth perspective on the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

This special issue focuses on the London Paralympic Games, which organisers hope will inspire the world by demonstrating that disability does not have to act as a barrier to participation in sport. To make this a reality, the Games’ organising bodies devised an ambitious plan of works and projects to ensure accessibility and promote social inclusion. But, in a bid to reduce public spending there has, in the past year, been a desperate e ort to save as much public money as possible, which inevitably has had an impact on the Games.
