New Norm & Agenda 2020

 

Olympic Agenda 2020 is the strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement.

The 40 recommendations are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that, when you put together,
form a picture that shows the IOC safeguarding the uniqueness of the Olympic Games
and strengthening sport in society.

Some of the key areas addressed by Olympic Agenda 2020 are:

  • Changes to the candidature procedure, with a new philosophy to invite potential
    candidate cities to present a project that fits their sporting, economic, social and
    environmental long-term planning needs.
  • Reducing costs for bidding, by decreasing the number of presentations that are
    allowed and providing a significant financial contribution from the IOC.
  • Move from a sport-based to an event-based programme.
  • Strengthen the 6th Fundamental Principle of Olympism by including non-
    discrimination of sexual orientation in the Olympic Charter.
  • Launch of an Olympic Channel to provide a platform for sports and athletes beyond
    the Olympic Games period, 365 days a year.
  • Adapting and further strengthening the principles of good governance and ethics to
    changing demands.
  • Athletes remain at the centre of all 40 of the proposals, with the protection of the
    clean athletes being at the heart of the IOC’s philosophy.

 

The New Norm

 

The New Norm focuses on six recommendations of Olympic Agenda 2020 related to the
organisation of the Games and is an ambitious set of 118 reforms.

The New Norm reimagines how the Olympic Games are organised.

It provides more flexibility in designing the Games to meet long-term development plans
and ensures that cities seeking to host the Games receive more support and assistance
from the Olympic Movement before, during and after the athletes hit the Field of Play.

The plan presents more than 100 measures of revised services and requirements that
could lead to maximum savings of hundreds of millions of dollars in the organisation of
Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The IOC has reshaped the candidature process, is transforming how the Games are
delivered and is focused on long-term development plans well before host cities are even
announced.

Through it all, the IOC, together with International Federations, National Olympic
Committees, TOP partners, and broadcasters, will work with cities every step of the way to
ensure the Games are affordable, beneficial and sustainable.
