Register now for the Forum on Sport, Peace and Development


Placed under the patronage of the International Olympic Truce Foundation (IOTF) and the IOC’s International Relations Commission, the International Forum on Sport, Peace and Development will be held on 7 and 8 May 2009 at The Olympic Museum in Lausanne.
 
This Forum is a unique occasion to exchange experiences and opinions on how sport can contribute to development, peace and national cohesion. The discussions will focus on today’s young people, through themes such as sport for community development and young people, and sport’s contribution to achieving the Millennium Development Goals established by the United Nations; physical activity for health and current trends among young people; and mobilising young people through sport towards active participation in urban life. The Olympic Games and their legacy for education, development and peace will also be among the topics addressed at the Forum.
 
As well as experts on the subject, the Forum will bring together representatives of the Olympic family, governmental and non-governmental institutions, UN agencies, and educational institutions.
 
The forum will be broadcast live in its entirety on: www.olympic.org. For journalists who will be covering the event, the live feed will be available on TV screens in rooms Athens 1 and 2.
 
Media wishing to cover the Forum are requested to send an e-mail to pressoffice@olympic.org. Accreditation will be distributed at the Reception of the Olympic Museum on 7 May.
