Special Olympics Chairman, Tim Shriver, and BBC Global News Happy Pod’s Harry Bligh share a conversation about Special Olympics, the importance of unity and the power of inclusive education.
“Before you inform your judgements of people, before you start to label people, before you get afraid of people who are different, why not try playing first. … That’s why schools are so important to us. Because if we can get very young children involved in what we call Unified Sports, where children with and without intellectual challenges play on teams together, what we find is that they’re not afraid.”
TIMOTHY SHRIVER, Chairman of the Board
