The Lausanne 2020 ambition

Lausanne 2020 is seeking to create a new sports platform for young people by actively involving them in the preparation and organisation of the event. This means engaging the local, regional and even national population around a unique, unifying occasion, that seeks to create a better world.

Promoting and giving responsibility to young people by providing them with an opportunity to become ambassadors of positive sports values, acquire new talents and achieve self-accomplishment by becoming the leaders of tomorrow. All this while making the Youth Olympic Games a creative laboratory; an incubator of ideas from young people, for young people, drawing inspiration from Switzerland’s heritage and unique assets in education, culture and innovation.
