Lausanne 2020, Games for the youth, by the youth and with the youth
Lausanne 2020 has always been committed to involving local youth as much as possible in the organisation of the next Winter Youth Olympic Games.
The Organising Committee was notably associated with eracom (Romandie school of arts and communications) for the whole process of creating the mascot and the visual identity of the Games, as well as the pictograms of the various sports. More than one hundred students from different areas of the school (interactive media design, clothing design, graphic design, advertising and polygraph) were involved.
The young people working on the Lausanne 2020 mascot had the opportunity to meet the Innsbruck 2012 mascot (Yoggl) and the Lillehammer 2016 mascot (Sjogg). Those working on pictograms and visual identity visited the Olympic Museum to draw inspiration from previous Games.
As the projects progressed, the students and teachers presented their creations to the Organising Committee, the IOC and the Olympic Museum.
The projects will continue from the beginning of the school year.
