Sports Values in Every Classroom
What is OVEP?
The Olympic Values Education Programme is a series of free and accessible teaching resources created by the IOC, to complement academic curricula using the context of Olympic sports and the core principles of Olympism. Participants are encouraged to experience values-based learning and to assume the responsibilities of good citizenship. OVEP communicates the long-term benefits of sport and physical activity through an understanding of Olympism and its impact on individual health, enjoyment, and social interaction.
Who is OVEP for?
OVEP is designed to benefit young people from all walks of life, various cultures and all levels of athletic ability. It is not just for elite and competitive athletes, but in fact for the widest community possible.
OVEP is easy to integrate and put into action by teachers, instructors, coaches, sports clubs, government and educational authorities, members of the Olympic Family and even parents at home!
