Lima 2019 will leave many stories and will let us witness many sporting achievements. However, a question is still to be answered: after the end of the Parapan American Games Closing Ceremony , will our city be the same? Definitely not!

Lima has been working on the Games legacy plan ever since it was proposed as a candidate to host the most important multi-sport event in America. Once the city was chosen, its legacy took a very important place in every activity. What are the key areas of the Lima 2019 legacy?

  1. Social-Educational Legacy

Lima’s future is in its children and youth. Through our “Soy Lima 2019” campaign, we will visit over 30 schools, promoting the values of the Pan American Games (excellence, respect and friendship) and Parapan American Games (equality, determination, inspiration and courage), as well as a healthy lifestyle based on sports to over 18,000 students.

Each one of them has been designed to be accessible for with an impairment and Para athletes that represent us in the best possible way. The Jorge Chávez International Airport staff has been trained to provide a good service for this special requirement and resolve problems.

3. Economic Legacy

The Games are a great window to promote our country. Over 170,000 tourists will come to our country’s capital city to enjoy the Games and revenues are estimated at over PEN 570 million. The best part is the international exposure of Marca Peru, which is valued in PEN 2,430 million. The world will be watching us!
