Winter Olympics 2018 in PyeongChang

From 9 to 25 February 2018 in Pyeongchang County, South Korea will organize  the XXIII Olympic Winter Games. 

The elected host city was announced on 6 July 2011 by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) after the 123rd IOC Session in Durban, South Africa. Pyeongchang won its bid on the first round of voting, receiving more votes than both Munich, Germany and Annecy, France combined.

These will be South Korea's second Olympic Games and its first Winter Games; Seoul hosted the Summer Games in 1988.

PyeongChang 2018's vision for the 2018 Games is to offer the Olympic Movement and the world of winter sports New Horizons - a legacy of new growth and new potential never seen before. Its Winter Games plan is one of the most compact in Olympic history, it offers a unique stage on which the world’s best athletes can achieve superior performances. With PyeongChang’s strategic position in Asia, and its access to a young and fast growing youth market, the 2018 Olympic Winter Games will no doubt expose new generations of potential athletes to the power of winter sport.

The emblem symbolises a world open to everyone. It combines the image of ice and snow, winter sports stars (athletes), and people from all over the world, coming together in PyeongChang where heaven meets earth.

PyeongChang 2018 Mascot

Soohorang, the mascot of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, took its motif from the white tiger. 
The white tiger has been long considered Korea’s guardian animal.
“Sooho”, meaning protection in Korean, symbolises the protection offered to the athletes, spectators and other participants of the 2018 Games. “Rang” comes from the middle letter of “Ho-rang-i”, the Korean word for “tiger,” and is also the last letter of “Jeong-seon A-ri-rang”, a cherished traditional folk song of Gangwon Province, where the Games will be held.
Soohorang not only has a challenging spirit and passion, but is also a trustworthy friend who protects the athletes, spectators and all the participants of the Olympic Games.

Evaluation Report of the Move up project

The "Move up to be healthy and happy" project, after two years of implementation, has come to an end. The implementation of international activities was launched in January 2016. It focused on achieving the assumed goal, which was to raise the awareness of children, parents and teachers about a healthy lifestyle.

The key project activities included:

- innovative PE lessons for children from primary school classes,
- educational classes in the field of proper nutrition for children,
- workshops for parents and teachers,
- sporting events for children, young people and parents,
- setting up an internet platform for joint exchange of experiences,
- creating a handbook for children about healthy lifestyle and physical activity.

Partners from countries such as Poland, Italy, Portugal, Great Britain, Romania and the Czech Republic have spent countless hours to implement the planned activities, changing the habits of project participants for healthy choices.
As all statistics show, the Partnership achieved the planned products and results of the project. At each stage of project implementation, all planned activities were carried out equal to or larger than assumed in the project application. Partners have adopted various forms of implementation of project activities, adapting to the existing situations and possibilities. The project inspired the involved institutions to continue their efforts to raise the awareness of children, teachers and parents about the need to lead a healthy lifestyle. This fact is a huge success of the partnership, because the "Move up" project will have its continuation in the form of organized sports and recreation events and classes in schools. What is important, it motivated many people to work on changing the pro-health education system for the youngest, and this is the greatest success of the project.

We would like to thank all participants of the project - primary school pupils, teachers, parents, management of educational institutions, educators and the project team who put in a huge amount of work in the implementation of the above activities.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the evaluation report, which describes in detail the implemented activities, the results achieved, and also the conclusions and recommendations.
