About the EOA
PREAMBLE OF THE STATUTES
The Olympic Charter obliges the National Olympic Committees to spread and preserve the basic principles and values of the Olympic Movement in their countries, encouraging and supporting the activities of the International Olympic Academy (“IOA”) and other institutions which dedicate themselves to Olympic Education.
This purpose is served above all by the National Olympic Academies and the NOC Commissions entrusted with the implementation of Olympic Education. They promote Olympism and the values of peace, fair play, respect, tolerance, joy of efforts, excellence and the harmonic development of body and mind, and oppose every form of discrimination, force and manipulation. They accompany the Olympic Movement in a critical- constructive way and contribute to its contemporary further development. […]
