The International Olympic Academy participated actively in the Youth Olympic Games for the fifth time presenting its educational programmes.
The IOA took part in the Buenos Aires YOG this October with its interactive educational programme “Discovering the Olympic Movement and its Values” in the framework of the programme “Compete, learn and share”.
More than 3.500 athletes, students and citizens visited the IOA booth, also jointly run by the International Olympic Truce Centre, and explored the IOA educational activities. The programme that was available in English and French was for the first time translated into Spanish so as to become accessible to the Argentinean citizens. The IOA and IOTC staff presented the activities and distributed memorabilia to the visitors of the booth.
The public’s interest in the IOA activities during the YOG surpassed all expectations and this motivates the IOA to continue its educational activities, mainly focused on the young people all over the world.
