Last call for registrations join the Busan Forum!

If you want to be part of the 6th World Forum on Sport, Education and Culture, it is time to register now. Today, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) issued its last call for registration for the event which will take place in Busan (Korea) from 25 to 27 September 2008. Youth education will be at the centre of the presentations and discussions.

Educating the Now Generation
What is the educational potential of events like the Youth Olympic Games? How can we educate athletes for the life after their sporting career? How can we discuss the doping scourge efficiently with youngsters? These are only a few of the important questions which will be addressed under the motto "Educating the Now Generation" of this sixth forum of its kind. To get input from young people first hand, one session will feature only youngsters on the podium.

Discussions in plenary and in parallel
Enough space for lively discussions and exchange will be given in plenary and parallel sessions. Amongst other things, the organisers of the first Youth Olympic Games in 2010 in Singapore will present how they are preparing for the premiere of this new IOC youth event, which will have a strong focus on education. The Organising Committees of future Olympic Games will share their methods to implement nationwide Olympic education programmes for kids and young people in the run-up to the Games. How Olympic values can be brought alive and enrich education will be an important aspect in the various discussions.
