In 2017, in view of the upcoming Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires in 2018, the Argentine Olympic Committee, through its own Olympic Education programme, implemented a nationwide education values through sport programme from an online educational platform.The main recipients were 1,903 teachers working in sports at the initiation level. The programme enabled teachers working in remote parts of the country to be trained and children to learn about Olympism as part of an integrated education through sport.Since April 1, 2019, the numbers have increased, and today more than 2,300 participants are implementing an Olympic Education programme adapted to the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima. Teachers can access the contents via an app, and the low-cost programme, while bringing together numerous participants, combines sport, education, art, culture and technology.The programme ended on August 15, 2019 and on September 21 a seminar was held, at which the presence of Argentine lecturers and international experts in education proved most valuable. In addition, betweennSeptember 16 and 20, the 37th Session of the Argentine Olympic Academy was held, with 50 representatives of National Federations and provincial governments participating.Following International Olympic Academy guidelines, issues addressed during the session were related to the legacy of the Olympic Games, the athlete as role model, and sport as atool for social development, promoting peace and diplomacy.
