The Youth Olympic Games – Lausanne 2020

26 years after becoming the Olympic Capital, Lausanne will become an Olympic City, as it hosts the 3rd edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games.

From January 9th to 22nd 2020, the world’s best athletes will travel to Switzerland to participate in this event. It is one of the largest multisport events held in winter, second only to the Winter Olympic Games. At the heart of this project are the main concepts of sustainability and legacy, as well as the focus on involving youth.

The city of Lausanne will be at the heart of the Youth Olympic Games, and will host the Youth Olympic Village, the ceremonies and all ice sports, (ice hockey, short track speed skating and figure skating). Curling will take place in Morges. The Alpine skiing, ski mountaineering, freestyle skiing and snowboard events will take place in the towns of Les Diablerets, Leysin and Villars in the Vaud Alps.

Through the Youth Olympic Games, Lausanne and the canton of Vaud create an innovative laboratory, incubator of ideas for youth, by youth, that will contribute to the diffusion of positive sports’ and Olympic values for future generations.
