WHAT?

A workshop and/or exhibition tour that allow(s) pupils to explore the Olympic values and discuss fair play, cheating and the quest for excellence. In doing so, they draw parallels between sport and their daily lives. They thus find that the answers are not always clear, unique or even definitive. The participants will learn to express their opinions and develop their critical thinking, but also to listen, understand and respect others’ opinions.
