"Over the last twenty years the UN, IOC, and the EU made significant and encouraging contributions in creating policies, events, white papers and organizational structures to advance related theory and practice most engaged stakeholders urge the need for (a) providing more opportunities to underserved communities, (b) advance applied and ongoing scientific evidence, (c) provide theory-based academic and professional training, (d)creating conditions for sustainable programming and (d) promote purpose driven international inter-institutional collaborations.
The International Olympic Truce Center (IOTC) contributes to this effort by creating an annual six-day Youth Camp which will take place at the International Olympic Academy’s premises in Ancient Olympia in July 26-31, 2014.
The UN office of Sport for Development and Peace (UNODP) has already endorsed the implementation of the week-long Youth Camp. Based on Olympic values, the Youth Camp addresses the issues of Peace, Olympic Truce, Respect for Diversity, and Conflict Resolution."
