The competition venues are getting prepared

Delegates from Lausanne 2020’s competition venues met at the Diablerets on 11th April to share their ideas to activate the venues that will host competitions during the Youth Olympic Games in 2020. This meeting provided the ideal occasion to strengthen the collaboration between the various venues, to coordinate work and to exchange ambitious ideas. The organising committee also took this opportunity to provide the delegates with important information in terms of security, transport, finance and the education and cultural programmes of the Games.

In parallel, various information sessions to the population were organised in Villars, Leysin and at the Diablerets. These meetings not only gave the populations of these towns the opportunity to ask many questions regarding the organisation of the Youth Olympic Games, but also allowed them to share their own ideas through brainstorm sessions organised by the venue delegates. The meetings were very productive and a great example of the enthusiasm and engagement shown by the local population for the organisation of this uniting project!
