Youth Olympic Games 2020


The City of Lausanne and the State of Vaud are candidate for the 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG2020).

The Olympic Capital has three major strengths: a rich heritage with more than a hundred years of common history with olympism, a unique expertise thanks to the 50 international sport oragnisations and federations proposing an amazing capital of aptitudes and compétences, as well as world renown academic institutions guaranteeing synergies to fully meet the educational dimension of the Youth Olympic Games (YOG).

international strength for a national impact

A major sports event only makes sense for a host if it can have a significant impact on the development of sports at the regional and the national level. Lausanne and the Canton of Vaud have the ambition and the capacities to become, through this event, a true catalyst for a structured development of sport in the Canton de Vaud.

Through these Youth Olympic Games, Lausanne and the State of Vaud want to be an innovation lab, an idea incubator for young people by young people, in order to contribute to the broadcasting of the positiv values of sport and olympism for future generations.
