In addition to the numerous programmes and workshops of the CEP, the Olympic Youth Festival 2012 offered both the athletes and young people from the local region the chance to get to know each other and enjoy the Games in Innsbruck.
Mountain Snow & Fun – The idea behind Mountain Snow & Fun was to enable participants to experience the Alpine environment in a fun way by working together. A range of team-building tasks and interactive games guaranteed a good time and improved communication among the athletes. This activity was offered twice a day for around 75 participants per session.
Sport Initiations – Participants had the chance to try out new sports like climbing, ice stock sport (similar to curling) and a range of trendy urban sports. Workshops for up to 30 participants were provided each day.
Evening Festival – Every day, a diverse Evening Festival was offered between 19:00 and 23:00. The programme varied from evening to evening and included DJ sets, video nights, live band performances and drumming sessions for the athletes, team officials, Young Ambassadors and Athlete Role Models.
