The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The Museu Olímpic i de l’Esport Joan Antoni Samaranch has designed an educational program for students of Primary Education, Secondary Education and Baccalaureate, in order to train in the Sustainable Development Goals (ODS) through tools that allow teachers and students a didactic and participatory learning. A similar training program in SDGs will also be developed for Vocational Training and University students, to educate future professionals with a global and inclusive vision.
Sport offers lifelong learning and alternative education to school children. By participating in the activities / workshops organized at the Museu Olímpic i de l’Esport JA Samaranch, students are exposed to fundamental sports values, including teamwork, fair play, respect for the rules and for others, cooperation, discipline and tolerance. These skills are essential for future participation in group activities and professional life and can stimulate social cohesion within communities and societies. These activities are aimed at personal and social development, participation, integration and the development of constructive critical thinking in teachers and students.
The workshops offer opportunities for social interaction and friendship, which can sensitize their participants about the roles assigned to gender.
In their contribution to peace, the workshops offer safe environments in the community and grassroots level, in which participants come together in the pursuit of common goals and interests, learn the values of respect, tolerance and fair play, and develop social competencies. As a common denominator and shared passion, our activities, like sport, can build bridges between communities regardless of their cultural differences or political divisions. In times of conflict or instability, sports activities can offer participants a sense of normalcy.
We encourage the teaching staff to train their students in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) through the program that we have developed at the Museu Olímpic i de l’Esport JA Samaranch.
To promote values
The museum’s way of introducing both sport and the Olympic movement has been designed with regard for the positive values they promotes, such as team spirit, hard work and persistence.
The museum aims to be a place where children and school groups can come to enjoy a experience that is both fun and educational.
Sport is brought closer to citizens through audiovisual installations and multimedia with interactive aspects.
The museum and its programme are being constantly updated with new content and contributions, with an exhibition format that allows for regular changes.
