Application Deadline: 3rd July 2015

If you’re aged 18 to 25, eager to 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 Youth 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 Imagine Peace Youth Camp for the second consecutive year.

Fifty participants from more than fifteen countries from around the world will come together for one week from 25 to 31 July 2015 in Ancient Olympia to take part in a series of workshops and activities that aim to promote equality and peace, and explore the role of sports in peace building and development.

Participants will be divided into groups of up to seventeen people. A team of experienced facilitators, volunteers and Olympic Champions will develop and facilitate the programme. Each group will be balanced in terms of gender and will reflect the diversity of their communities.

The Imagine Peace Youth Camp programme will give young people from different parts of the world with different cultural and political backgrounds the opportunity to share, explore and reflect on a variety of concepts such as peace, racism and intercultural dialogue through interactive workshops and sports.

The programme will be based on reciprocal learning situations among participants and will make use of a variety of working methods.

  • between the ages of 18 and 25

  • available and fully committed to taking part in the Imagine Peace Youth Camp
