Youth at centre stage of the 7th World Conference on Sport, Education and Culture

“Giving a Voice to Youth” will be more than just the motto of the 7th World Conference on Sport, Education and Culture, to be held in Durban, South Africa, from 5 to 7 December 2010. During a youth session, organised within the conference, young participants at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) that were held in Singapore in August, will talk about their personal experience at this very first edition and also exchange with their South African peers. Young people will also be given the floor in other sessions to offer their first-hand input on learning experiences in the fields of sport, education, culture and society.

Other discussions, to take place in plenary and parallel sessions, will focus on values-based education, the Cultural Olympiad, education for sustainable development and how to develop a culture of healthy lifestyles, to name just a few.

The event is being organised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), in partnership with the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), and will bring together representatives from the world of sport, universities, NGOs, governments and intergovernmental organisations.
