Youth engagement: for young people, by them and with them
For young people, by them and with them: The Youth Olympic Games represent a splendid opportunity to reach and inspire a new generation. The Organising Committee wishes to offer young local players the opportunity to take an active role before and after the Games. With this perspective, Lausanne 2020 has provided itself with the means to involve nearly 130?000 students at every level: compulsory, further, higher and private education to work on preparing and organising this event.
YOG for young people, by them and with them: this idea is at the heart of the Lausanne 2020 project. All the lifeblood of the canton of Vaud will play a part to provide Youth Olympic Games that will go down in history: Olympic history, the history of the host city, of the canton, of the country, but also of every student involved in the project.
Olympic Cauldron, medal trays and podiums
These three highly symbolic elements of an Olympic event are the fruit of a partnership between three schools: the students of the Lausanne art school (ECAL) design the Olympic cauldron, the medal trays and the podiums. The apprentices of the EDC Construction School and of C-FOR (Lausanne Utilities Training Centre) then build the cauldron and the podiums. Although carried out in two phases, a lively cooperation between the different players was necessary to ensure the technical feasibility of the project.
The Lausanne 2020 Olympic Cauldron, the medal trays and the podiums won't be unveiled until the opening of the Games…be patient! Beginning in October, the other projects submitted will be displayed at the Olympic Museum.
