Our vision

Our vision is to build a better world through sport. We are not the only institution striving to build a better world – however our tool is sport, which makes it unique. We try to do this through three main values rooted in the philosophy of Pierre de Coubertin: Striving for excellence, Demonstrating respect and Celebrating friendship.

We have three missions linked to delivering on our vision and reflecting our values of excellence, respect and friendship: 

  • to ensure the uniqueness and regular celebration of the Olympic Games
  • to put athletes at the heart of the Olympic Movement
  • to promote sport and the Olympic values in society, with a focus on young people.

To fulfil its mission, the Olympic Movement has adopted and adheres to four working principles. These working principles preserve the integrity and distinctiveness of what we do.

The IOC is moving ahead with the project to construct its new headquarters so that, by 2020, its staff can all be together at Olympic House. Designed by architects 3XN, Olympic House will faithfully reflect Olympism, the Olympic Movement and the role of the IOC as a catalyst for collaboration, in a symbolic and transparent manner.
