Whether it’s recycling, turning off the lights or choosing to walk instead of drive, we all need to do our bit to help protect the environment. And, at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games, athletes will get the opportunity to give something back by planting in a tree in the newly opened YOG Forest Park.

Sustainability

IOC assesses
IOC assesses sustainability action in the light of Rio+20 World leaders, along with thousands of participants from governments, the private sector, NGOs and other groups, are meeting in Rio from 20 to 22 June to discuss how to reduce poverty, advance social equity and ensure environmental protection on an ever more crowded planet. The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, often abbreviated to Rio+20, will also be joined by an IOC delegation and this is for good reasons. The IOC and the Olympic Movement are actively contributing to achieving a sustainable future for all, and in recognition of its work, the IOC was even granted “permanent observer status” by the United Nations in 2009.
