Olympism in Action – Olympic Education Professional Training

The core of our Olympism in Action curriculum is designed based on more than 30 years of related institutional expertise on Olympic Education, Global Sport for Development and conflict resolution program design, assessment and delivery. The essence of our curriculum is centered on the use of Olympic Values and ideals as a peacebuilding vehicle for embracing data driven Human Development, Social Innovation, Democracy Actualization and Sustainable Development programs and initiatives. Actualizing, in other words, the Olympic idea and ideals- through Praxis


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 a residential professional development program in Ancient Olympia, Greece and across the globe.

The O4H Praxis training is ideally suited to the needs of change-makers, sport stakeholders and humanitarian agents, NGO practitioners, students, athletes, Olympians, policy makers, faculty, researchers, program officers and educators. Our Olympism in Action professional development program in Ancient Olympia aims to provide the tools and skills for community-based programming, impact investment ventures, fundraising campaigns and scholarship.
