Vancouver 2010 - For schools
Look at the Olympic Games in terms of sustainable development and take part in activities linked to sustainable sport. Such is the challenge offered by the educational programme developed for the Vancouver 2010 exhibition (8 October 2009 to 11 April 2010).
Vancouver 2010 Educational Kit – Objective sustainable development
A document illustrated with photos and explanatory diagrams to help you study the Games from the angle of sustainable development. This kit offers information on the icons of the Games; analyses the sustainable development initiatives followed; and invites pupils (aged 6-16) to act by proposing projects the whole class can undertake. The tools needed to discover the exhibition on your own are provided: a suggested route, information on scenography, specific details on various key elements, and suggested questions to ask your pupils.
To be used with the educational kit: a selection of photos to illustrate how Olympic facilities have evolved. To be used for discussions on sustainable sport. Click here to see the photos
Combined visit & "Sustainable Games, Olympic challenges!" Workshop
The pupils visit the exhibition accompanied by a guide. The visit is followed by a workshop. Using the examples of traditional games and their commercial alter-ego, the pupils will look at the various dimensions of sustainable development. They will then try out some of the processes adopted for Vancouver 2010. Combining the Olympic Games and science, this workshop shows how beetle-infested wood can be used to advantage and how to use ice to stay warm!
