In 2007 the idea of Youth Olympic Games (YOG) became a reality by IOC (International Olympic Committee). In these games in addition to the sport competitions program, YOG features an extensive Culture and Education Program (CEP), which aims to introduce young athletes to Olympism and Olympic values in a fun and festive spirit and to raise the awareness of important issues such as the benefit of a healthy life, the fight against doping, global challenges and their role as sport ambassadors in their communities. CEP is based on five themes that form different activities. These themes are: Olympism, healthy life,skill development, social responsibility and expression.
2016 winter games are going to be held in Lillehammer and 1713 athletes – age: between 14-18 – are going to share, care and create under the CEP umbrella in a 10 days period of OL with the vision of “ go beyond, create tomorrow.” Venues are in Lillehammer, Gjøvik and Hamar although the main Olympic village is in Lillehammer. Due to the lack of accommodation around 300 athletes and officials will stay in Hamar where is in 60 km of Lillehammer.
