TEACHING VALUES AN OLYMPIC EDUCATION TOOLKIT O ur world today is in need of peace, tolerance and brotherhood. By blending sport with culture and education, the Olympic values can deliver these to us. Sport is more than just competition. It is a state of mind. The challenge of the Olympic Movement is to educate and encourage young people to practise sport, and to teach them values. Sport helps people, especially young people, to escape daily concern, to respect each other and to learn that rules exist and how important it is to respect them. Sport also brings hope, pride, a sense of identity and health, thus shaping the body and mind. This is precisely what the International Olympic Committee, with the support of the ISM company, is striving to encourage and promote through its Olympic Values Education: using Olympic sport traditions and values as the context for teaching life values and skills. With Teaching Values: An Olympic Education Toolkit, we intend to introduce young people all over the world to the values of respect for self and others, fair play, excellence, joy in effort and the balance of body, mind and will. We will thus be moving forward by making the teaching of universal ethical values a priority, and by promoting physical education and sport and its benefits to society in general. Ultimately, this is something that affects us all because the Olympic Movement of tomorrow is in the hands of the young people of today. Our hope is if the young people can learn to respect each other on the field of play, they may transfer this sentiment to other elements of their daily lives. FOREWORDBY: JACQUESROGGE CONTENTS AND FOREWORD TEACHINGVALUES7 INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE PRESIDENT JACQUES ROGGE SETS OUT THE OLYMPIC MOVEMENT'S VISION OF INTRODUCING YOUNG PEOPLE TO THE EDUCATIONAL VALUES OF OLYMPISM.

8TEACHING VALUES CONTENTS AND FOREWORD T he renovator of the Olympic Games, Pierre de Coubertin, wrote that " Olympism seeks the harmonious development of the body and the mental capacities, but also that of the cultural and artistic values of man in order to improve his understanding and feeling of friendship towards the union of sport, art and culture". In today's world marked with fast economic and social development, but also with conflicts, the Olympic Movement and all its stakeholders have to think about how to ensure that sport remains attractive to children and young people in our society, which is increasingly interested in leisure-driven entertainment. By designing Teaching Values: An Olympic Education Toolkit, the International Olympic Committee ( IOC) is promoting the role of sport in strengthening friendly ties and mutual respect among peoples and in particular the youth. Through their teachers and educators, coaches or sports club leaders, the young people of the world will not only learn more about Olympic history and its symbols, but they will also discover the power and strength of the Olympic values such as friendship, respect and excellence. I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Deanna L. Binder, and to all those who gave their time and passion, for their contribution to developing this toolkit. Thanks also to the ISM company for supporting the IOC in its pursuit of excellence through its educational role. By inspiring a " spirit of Olympism Culture", let us hope that Teaching Values: An Olympic Education Toolkitcan contribute, with its own means, to building a world of harmony. FOREWORDBY: HEZHENLIANG HE ZHENLIANG, THE CHAIRMAN OF THE IOC COMMISSION FOR CULTURE AND OLYMPIC EDUCATION, WRITES THAT, BY PROMOTING THE VALUES OF OLYMPISM, WE CAN CREATE A MORE HARMONIOUS WORLD. 8
