On the occasion of International Volunteers Day, the Beijing 2022 Organising Committee launched its “Building a Dream Together” campaign, aimed at recruiting passionate and dedicated volunteers for the Olympic Winter Games in 2022.
Continuing the powerful legacy and spirit of volunteerism from the Olympic Games Beijing 2008, the Organising Committee plans to recruit 27,000 volunteers for the Olympic Winter Games and 12,000 volunteers for the Paralympic Winter Games. The volunteers selected will have the unique opportunity to work in one of the Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou competition zones and play a valuable role in a variety of areas such as sport, media operations, language services and technology.

Volunteers from Beijing 2008, as well as athletes and artists, were on hand at the event as a symbol of the lasting legacies of 2008. Beijing 2022 Olympic mascot Bing Dwen Dwen and Paralympic mascot Shuey Rhon Rhon also joined the celebration.
