If you want to get one of the last places for the 6th World Forum on Sport, Education and Culture, register now at www.olympic.org/busanforum. Under the motto "Sport and Education for the Now Generation", the event will take place in Busan (Korea) from 25 to 27 September 2008. Forum participants will also have the chance to watch the Opening Ceremony of the 4th Busan TAFISA World Sport for All Games on 26 September.
What is the educational potential of events like the Youth Olympic Games? How can we educate athletes for life after their sporting career? How can we discuss the doping scourge effectively with youngsters? And which are successful methods to implement nationwide Olympic education programmes for kids and young people in the countries of future Olympic Games? These are only a few of the topics which will be addressed during lively discussions in plenary and parallel sessions. The detailed programme is now available and features speakers from the Olympic family, governmental and non-governmental institutions, the United Nations system, universities and media groups. To get input from young people first hand, one session will feature only youngsters on the podium.
