Inclusive Cultural Fun Walk

Agung and Anjas are a Special Olympics Youth Leaders from Indonesia who participated in the Global Youth Leadership Summit. With a mission of developing greater understanding and inclusion for those with intellectual disabilities in their community, Agung and Anjas are planning an Inclusive Cultural Fun Walk to bridge the gap between those with intellectual disabilities and those without intellectual disabilities. Agung and Anjas believe that this walk will bring the community together to celebrate diversity and allow those who are not familiar with Special Olympics and its mission to become informed.

 

Over six months, Agung and Anjas will form a planning committee, seek out permits for the walk, and meet with schools and sponsors for the event. Agung and Anjas will actively engage 5 of their peers with and without Intellectual Disabilities in the planning process and hope to engage over 100 youth with and without intellectual disabilities in the walk itself. By bringing the Unified Generation together for an Inclusive Cultural Fun Walk, Agung and Anjas are increasing inclusion while promoting a healthy lifestyle in Indonesia.
