Young Leader Berber Swart of the IOC addresses mental health through sports initiative

The Olympic Games Paris 2024 are just around the corner, and the Let’s Move campaign is set to conclude on Olympic Day (23 June). This campaign serves as a prelude to the upcoming games, encouraging more people to stay active and embrace healthy lifestyles. Building on the success of last year’s initiative, which saw over 15 million individuals join in, this year’s campaign will involve more than 1,000 athletes.

In addition to promoting physical activity, the IOC Young Leaders Programme is empowering young individuals to use sport to create positive change in their communities. Since its launch in 2016, this program has aligned with Olympism365, the IOC’s strategy for using sport to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through this program, young leaders have implemented over 160 sport-based projects globally, benefiting more than 37,000 individuals in areas such as education, equality, health, peace building and sustainability.

Panasonic has been supporting the IOC Young Leaders Programme since 2017 and will continue until 2024. As the founding partner of the program, Panasonic provides creative and technological expertise along with a network of influencers and ambassadors to inspire and equip young leaders with the necessary skills and tools for their projects. To learn more about Panasonic’s support for the program and receive updates sign up for the “IOC Young Leaders in Action” newsletter.
