Schnitzer, Martin

This articles assesses if and how the youth in the communities of the YOG host cities have been influenced concerning their perception of the Olympic values and the Olympic movement. Special attention of the study is paid to the analysis of intervention mechanisms which the local youth underwent (e.g. attending the YOG on-site, participating in school programmes). The study was conducted among 1004 adolescents living in the host region three years after the Innsbruck 2012 YOG had been staged.
