The implementation of the Olympic education concept through "Generation 2024" / Eric Monnin

Monnin, Eric

The organisation of the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024 is a real opportunity for France to promote sport among young people, to enhance the Olympic values (excellence, friendship and respect), to develop health sport, to strengthen the diversity of practices and governing bodies, to move towards a more inclusive society. The creation of the “Generation 2024” labels for schools and universities such as the University of Franche-Comté, “Terre de Jeux” for the territories, the dissemination of educational tools deployed through high points: Olympic and Paralympic week, Olympic day, International University Sports Day...are all resources that could be called the “Olympic education Paris 2024” programme. This document deals, first of all, with the conceptual approach by attempting to define the concepts of Olympism and Olympic education. It then takes a more pragmatic approach to different forms of Olympic education through the example of an Olympic week organised by the French state (Ministries of National Education and Higher Education) and the Organising Committee for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. And finally, it concludes this reflection by trying to understand how this Olympic education is being institutionalised throughout the world.
