The countdown is on! In just 400 days, all eyes will be on Nanjing, China, for the Opening Ceremony of the 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games.

Over 3,600 top athletes, 28 Olympic sports - including golf and rugby sevens, both new to the YOG programme – 10 days of exciting sporting action and 1 awesome event!

Helping Nanjing get ready for this incredible competition are 12 teenage consultants who come from all over the world and who are feeding the organising team with their creative ideas and feedback.

The Teenage Consultants Project, which features young people from 11 different countries, including United States, Germany, Australia and Singapore, also saw the group visit Nanjing for a cultural exchange during which they enjoyed Nanjing’s famous sites such as the Temple of Confucius and the Qinhuai River and were left with unforgettable memories of the city.

We can’t wait to see what they have planned for us next year! What are you most looking forward to?
