- Be integral to the worldwide promotion of the Olympic Movement and its values, by means of the Olympic Channel;
- Provide a forum through which all key stakeholders of the Olympic Movement (specifically the International Federations, National Olympic Committees, Rights-Holding Broadcasters and Olympic sponsors), as well as senior professional experts, can contribute their specific know-how, ideas and feedback regarding the Olympic Channel, and provide comment on its approach, content, appearance and strategy;
- Be the key conduit through which the Olympic Channel will be able to draw upon the valuable knowledge and expertise of its core stakeholders, and ensure their contributions are made available to the responsible governing bodies of the Olympic Channel.
