The Tokyo Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) is working on various plans and initiatives to raise people's interest in sport and the Tokyo 2020 Games. This initiative will encourage people to adopt new ideas in the build up to the Games. This page shows the different plans and the work created by participants during these exciting events.

TOKYO 2020 Make The Beat!

There’s a new beat in town to help everyone get into that Olympic and Paralympic spirit.

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) launched “Make the Beat!”, ­ a project combining sound, technology and social media to invite fans around the world to encourage athletes using the official Tokyo #2020beat.

It’s a universal cheer everyone in the world can do.

You can also join in through social media.
The video you post could be shown on big screens at competition venues.
Your #2020beat will bring more excitement to the Tokyo 2020 Games.

*The Tokyo 2020 "Make The Beat!" project website has been temporarily suspended. We plan to reopen in the spring of 2021.

TOKYO 2020 Open Innovation Challenge

The TOKYO 2020 Open Innovation Challenge is a global contest for developers to build innovative apps that will enhance and reinvent the experience of spectators while watching urban sports.

The aim of the app development competition is to find enjoyable ways to bring fans closer to the action.
