Olympism in Action Professional Training
The core of our Olympism in Action curriculum is designed based on more than 30 years of related institutional and individual expertise on Applied Olympic and Paralympic Education; sport for development and peace program design and delivery; social entrepreneurship, community health, and resilience; and sport policy and governance.
Olympism For Humanity (O4H) Praxis Training Program
Given the increased international interest from a number of humanitarian, educational, sport, NGO practitioners and civil society institutions to promote the use of sport, arts, cultural and educational programs as vehicles to address local and global humanitarian challenges, change agents and agencies are expected to possess skills and competencies that traditional academic programs do not provide.
To address this largely unmet need, the annual Olympism For Humanity (O4H) Praxis Program provides interdisciplinary and applied professional development opportunities to advance evidence-based policy and programming.
Building on the great success of the first O4H professional training programs that took place in ancient Olympia in Summer 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017- and in India in 2017 and 2018- O4H Praxis Program offers an annual residential professional development program in Ancient Olympia, Greece and across the globe.
The O4H Praxis training is ideally suited to the needs of change and humanitarian agents and agencies, NGO practitioners, students, athletes, Olympians, policy makers, faculty, researchers, program officers and educators. This annual Professional Development program in Ancient Olympia aims to provide the tools and skills for community-based prevention programming and scholarship.

(a) Olympic Values Education and Olympism in Action foundations
