2014 | THE INTERNATIONAL NETWORK OF COUBERTIN SCHOOLS

At the moment 25 schools from five continents are working closely together in the network of Coubertin - Schools, which is growing faster and faster.
Due to Coubertin’s ideas of international friendship, fight for peace in the world, fair play and tolerance, the students regularly exchange experiences and participate in joint projects.
Every two years representatives of these schools meet in an international Youth Forum of Coubertin Schools. This is always a wonderful highlight with unforgotten events in the Olympic spirit.
The first Forum was held in Le Havre (France) 1997, followed by Much Wenlock (Great Britain) 1999, Lausanne (Switzerland) 2001, Genova-Arenzano (Italy) 2003, Radstadt (Austria) 2005, Tábor (Czech Republic) 2007, Olympia (Greece) 2009, Beijing (China) 2011 and Lillehammer (Norway) 2013. During one week the youths compete for the Coubertin-medals donated by the CIPC (International Pierre de Coubertin Committee).

But, of course, there is also the possibility for workshops, discussions and excursions in order to learn more about the country and its people.
