Åtte gode råd til IOC

Under Ungdoms-OL i februar var 60 unge ledere fra Tyskland og Norge samlet til workshopen "Shaping the Olympic movement". Sammen jobbet de fram åtte gode råd sammenfattet i et kommuniké til IOC om hvordan Ungdoms-OL kan bli enda bedre. 

Blant de norske representantene var det bl.a. flere studenter fra studiene i Sport Management og idrett på HiL. Fra Tyskland var det ledere fra Deutsche Sportjugend.

Under seminaret Top level performance in sports, research and culture som ble arrangert fredag 19. februar på HiL ble kommunikeet overlevert Den internasjonale olympiske kommité (IOC).

Innholdet er sammenfattet i åtte punkter.

1. Kombiner Ungdoms-OL med paralypiske ungdomsleker

We believe that including young Paralympic athletes in the YOG program will create an additional value for the YOG and for the participating athletes. This idea will strengthen the Olympic value “Respect” and athletes, coaches and officials will have a live “Learn & Share” experience. We think, competitions are supposed to be parallel. Additionally, a mixed competition of athletes and Paralympic athletes could be integrated into the sport program where it could be possible or create new combined sports, e.g. mixed echelon together. Athletes and spectators should have the opportunity to try out some Paralympic disciplines in order to experience how life and sport is with a disability.

2. Hvert Ungdoms-OL har et partnerland

Demonstrating solidarity and emphasizing the Olympic value “Friendship” we believe every Youth Olympic Games could build up a partnership with one developing country. It is aimed by this to exchange knowledge and experience, and to transfer these from the hosting city to the partner country. This should include experiences from before and after the YOG in order to provide help for development and to improve the sporting conditions and integrating the Olympic ideology in the partnered country. For example, young leaders could visit the developing country, and vice versa, for one month in order to experience the needs and sports structures.

3. Skape partnerskap mellom utviklede - og utviklingsland 

Based on the second idea, we believe that developed countries can build up a partnership with developing countries in order to give young athletes the chance to prepare for the YOG under the same conditions while knowledge and support can be shared. This will provide a platform for better cultural understanding and for learning from each other.

4. Tilby særskilte insentiver og priser

We strongly recommend offering special incentives and awards at the YOG by the IOC. As an example the IOC could announce a „fair play award“. In addition, there could be cultural and creative awards. It is important that the IOC promotes and recognizes countries that promote the YOG ideology.

5. Ansvarlige sponsorer 

During the Learn & Share program athletes learn more about a healthy and ethical lifestyle. Sponsors financially support the YOG and use the Games for their own promotion which can be in conflict with the promoted healthy lifestyle. We believe that a more careful sponsorship approach for the YOG will strengthen the Olympic values and increase the credibility of the IOC.

6. YOG som plattform for å støtte en bærekraftig utvikling

Each country should send young coaches, officials and referees to the YOG. This is to encourage volunteerism and use the YOG for the development of talented coaches and referees for a sustainable development of the Olympic sports. The young people will enjoy additional education beforehand in their home country. All the athletes will be informed about this and have to give an oath to respect the decisions the referees have made.

7. Internasjonalt akademi for unge ledere

Bringing young leaders from each country together, including disabled ones, will help develop well trained and educated leaders for the national and international sport organisations. It should be an international open call for applications by the IOC. It is desired to have at least one young leader from each country irrespective whether the country sends athletes to the YOG or not. The camp should consist of seminars, workshops, discussions, time to visit competitions and the possibility to network. As a condition for participation, participants would have to spread the idea from the camp and the YOG within their home country. They also have to give a feedback to the IOC about what they have learned and how they spread the information and the Olympic values.

8. Unge ambassadører fra hvert av de 206 nasjonale olympiske komitélandene (NOC) 

The idea is to appoint one young ambassador per NOC, who is responsible for spreading the idea of YOG in his/her country - not only during the YOG, but also one year before and after. Until now only athletes and people, who are directly involved in the event know about the YOG. By being present during national competitions or sporting events, the awareness of the YOG can be increased. An important task of these ambassadors will be to explain the Olympic values and the differences between YOG and the Olympic Games. All young ambassadors meet once a year in order to exchange experiences and to further develop the concept. By the end of a year one ambassador with the best project will be awarded with the title “Olympic ambassador of the year”.
