The IOC is aware of the amount and high quality of existing Olympic education programmes. Since Calgary in 1988, all the Organising Committees have developed new tools to spread the message. NOCs and some organisations and institutions have done the same. To build on the efforts already made and encourage the use of existing expertise, the IOC asked the Autonomous University of Barcelona to produce an inventory of the Olympic education programmes and tools.
The aim is here to present a selection of different kind of educational initiatives implemented around the world. They are inspired by Olympic values and targeted to young people from 8 to 18 years old.
This is a work in progress: 21 initiatives have been listed so far. They come from Olympic National Committees (NOCs), Olympic Academies and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). This is a first step! The objective is to increase this number in the future.
The database will then give a more and more complete vision of real applications of Olympic values within educational programmes around the world. An inspiring tool for teachers and educators.
