Youth Olympic Games changes

The Working Group recommendations presented to the Session put forward five strategic goals:

Increase participation and level of competition …

Bring the YOG to cities that cannot organise the Olympic Games …

Expand the reach and impact of the YOG …

Leverage digital platforms to extend the YOG experience …

Enhance the YOG’s role as incubator for innovation …

These recommendations were unanimously accepted by the Session. The implementation of the recommendations will be achieved in consultation with all relevant stakeholders by Q4 2017.

The next Summer YOG to take place will be the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games of Buenos Aires. The next Winter YOG to take place will be the 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games of Lausanne.

Gymnastics will be hosted in a venue yet to be built – Predio Ferial Olímpico.
