Kohler: Keep using the momentum and positive mood

Sebastian Koller, youth sector project manager at Austrian Special Olympics, said the selective event should have an impact on work on “inclusion through sport” for people with intellectual disabilities. The many collaborations, the dynamism and the positive mood that has now emerged in the region and perhaps even beyond the borders of the federal states must continue. This is very important, one not only thinks sustainably, but also wants to act sustainably.

Well-established national organization

The event that has already ended is reflected in the structures. A state organization for Special Olympics has already been established in Burgenland. State Councilor Heinrich Dorner (SPÖ) said that one wants to use the State Assembly to give the subject not only this one event, but also in the future to give lasting importance. The state can support this financially and by communicating about the fact that people with disabilities should move to a community center. “This is our job, too,” Dorner says.
