Ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and with the start of a new school year, the Canadian Olympic Committee has launched "Destination Tokyo" as part of its Canadian Olympic School Program.
Destination Tokyo comprises a wide range of resources that will support school teachers in better engaging students in every aspect of the Olympic Games, by focusing on three topics "Olympic Design", "Live from the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games" and "The Greenest Olympic Games".
"We hope the program encourages your students to challenge themselves, to pursue their dreams, and to enjoy the journey of every adventure that our resources, Destination Tokyo, offer."
Tricia Smith, President, Canadian Olympic Committee
