Join the debate!

Improvements in technology have now made it possible to canvass a wide spectrum of people for their views and opinions on different aspects of Olympism.

Since its launch, the virtual Olympic Congress has already received an overwhelming level of interest from members of the Olympic family and the general public. The banner was designed to reflect this dynamism and the overall purpose of the Congress: to take the pulse of the Olympic Movement and the general public.

Voice your opinion!

Submissions from the Olympic family and the general public will be accepted until 31 December 2008. The virtual Olympic Congress is an important component of the preparatory process leading up to the 13th Olympic Congress in Copenhagen. The submissions from the Olympic family will be analysed to provide a set of draft recommendations for discussion in Copenhagen. A statistical analysis of the public’s contributions will be available on the IOC’s website in 2009, and selected contributions included in the Congress’ proceedings.
