The aim of the competition
The competition aims to highlight the ideals and values of Olympism and the Olympic Truce, and how they can help resolve differences and, more generally, promote equality and peace. It also aims to help students gain self-confidence and develop skills to present their ideas.
Respecting Diversity Workshops
In partnership with International Olympic Truce Centre, Samsung and the Greek Olympic Champions Club, we are running a series of Respecting Diversity workshops, which we have designed specifically for students aged 10–15 in schools all over Greece.
The aim of the workshops is to promote Olympic values such as equality, respect and mutual understanding between people. Through our workshops, students learn how to resolve conflict in a peaceful manner and to show respect towards other people.
