If you're aged 17 to 25, eager to help make a change to other people's lives and believe in the importance of the Olympic values, we invite you to take part in our Imagine Peace Summer Camp and become a member of a community of emerging leaders from around the globe!
In partnership with the International Olympic Truce Centre (IOTC) and under the auspices of the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP), we are organising the second Imagine Peace Summer Camp.
Fifty participants from more than fifteen countries from around the world with different cultural and political backgrounds will come together for one week from 24 to 31 July 2016 in Ancient Olympia to take part in a series of educational workshops and sports activities that aim to promote equality and peace, and explore the role of sport in the peaceful resolution of conflict.
Participants will be divided into groups of up to seventeen people, which will be balanced in terms of gender and reflect the diversity of participants' communities. A team of experienced facilitators, volunteers and Olympic champions will facilitate the programme.
Participants should be:
- between the ages of 17 and 25
- able to communicate in English
- available and fully committed to taking part in the Imagine Peace Summer Camp
- involved in youth or community projects in their own community and be motivated to implement youth initiatives for peace building following the event
- curious, open-minded and appreciative of diversity.
