The two week annual session, traditionally held in June or July session was to be held in Greece however due to the reigning covid19 pandemic the 61st 2021 session will be held virtually and it is designed as an introduction to Olympism and the Olympic Movement. The IOA brings together a large international group of young people who are primarily students, Olympic athletes, people active in sport, teaching or active in their respective NOCs or NOAs.
