Ambassadors of european and olympic values 2019/2020 - Season 5
Maison de l’Europe Bordeaux-Aquitaine has already welcomed more than 80 volunteers from 18 different countries over the last 5 years. It also ran an exemplary project as part of Euro 2016: “Ambassadors of European Values”. This project, which received excellents reviews locally, enabled us to re-evaluate all of our missions upwards and, above all, to make them sustainable through a sixth season, which we are currently hosting under the name of Ambassadors for European and Olympic Values 2019-2024. Our current project incorporates two new dimensions: the promotion of Olympic values based on the three fundamental values of Olympism: excellence, friendship and respect; and the promotion of european values and mobility. In all these mobility projects, we work at local and international level with over a hundred loyal partners.
The main aim of this project is to promote European and Olympic values throughout Gironde department. The aim is to ensure that, before the 2024 Olympics, every young person in Gironde has had the opportunity to learn about Olympic and European values, thus to reinforce their active and positive citizenship.
This season we are continuing to open up to third countries such as Georgia, but we also have the pleasure of welcoming two new nationalities – Denmark and Belgium! All our European volunteers are once again accompanied by French volunteers in Civil Service. From the start of the new academic year, everyone has been mobilised to bring Europe and the values of Olympism into classes, associations, leisure centres and the media. The idea is to overcome stereotypes, discrimination, xenophobia, violence and isolationism and to promote respect and fair play.
Once again, we wish to our 18 ambassadors of European and Olympic values a lot success!
