The Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has endorsed the Olympism 365 strategy. It aims to strengthen the role of sport as an important enabler for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN) and to connect people with the Olympic values everywhere, every day.

Olympism 365 will be the engine behind Recommendation 10 of Olympic Agenda 2020+5, which commits to this strengthening of the role of sport as an important enabler for the UN SDGs. With this strategy, the IOC reaffirms its commitment to build on the momentum created by the Olympic Games to promote the Olympic values and the role of sport in society 365 days a year.

Olympism 365 applies the Fundamental Principles of Olympism and aligns with local aid investment plans, development plans, and other initiatives that are aligned with the SDGs. Through its impact in the areas of access, belonging, benefits, and connection, Olympism 365 has direct alignment with 17 targets in 10 SDGs.
