EOA Seminar Klaipeda

“Opportunities and limits of the Olympic Movement for international understanding and peace in the context of current time

The European Olympic Academies launched a new event series called “EOA Seminars”. In this series of regional workshops, experts and NOA delegates explore current issues in the Olympic Movement and means to apply them to the practice of the National Olympic Academies. At the same time, this setting provides a forum for academies from neighbouring countries to meet and share their knowledge and expertise.

The first edition will be hosted by the Lithuanian Olympic Academy at Klaipeda University on 24-26 August 2022 and will will geographically cover the north-east of Europe.
