28 EUROPEAN YOUNG AMBASSADORS ARE READY FOR THE WINTER & SUMMER EUROPEAN YOUTH OLYMPIC FESTIVALS 2023
The European Young Olympic Ambassadors (EYOA) programme, an innovative programme developed through the European Olympic Committees (EOC) Culture & Education Commission, is set for its sixth and seventh editions.
“We are very excited about the new EYOA. We have a great group of Ambassadors with different backgrounds and experiences who are very inspired and motivated to deliver the best possible programme for the young athletes. The winter edition of EYOF in Friuli Venezia Giulia will be challenging in terms of organisation and logistics with three clusters and competitions throughout the region and beyond. However, these challenges will make our young team think outside of the box which usually inspires innovation and new solutions. Therefore, I am looking forward to seeing what kind of activities our Ambassadors will create.”
“Four virtual webinars have been designed in order to provide the Ambassadors with the most important information about Olympism and Olympic values. There will be tailor-made presentations using best practice examples that provide learning opportunities and suggestions on how to attract the attention of athletes and engage them. In addition, all relevant information about the event organisation and communication will be given by representatives from the Organising Committee and other experts from the EOC and other institutions. Between webinars, Ambassadors will work in small groups which are ideal for brainstorming and developing ideas. Our Alumni team is helping them in this process by mentoring them. We are also very grateful for the support of our Chair, Jean Michel Brun, Member of the EOC Executive Board.”
