Lausanne, Switzerland. February 15, 2021 — The Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has proposed a new strategic roadmap, Olympic Agenda 2020+5, to the upcoming IOC Session. It consists of 15 recommendations. The new roadmap follows Olympic Agenda 2020 and will guide the IOC’s work and the Olympic Movement for the next five years.

Olympic Agenda 2020+5 will be submitted to the IOC Members for discussion and adoption at the 137th IOC Session in March this year. The title, Olympic Agenda 2020+5, has been chosen to reflect that this new roadmap is the successor to Olympic Agenda 2020 and will guide the IOC and the Olympic Movement’s work until 2025.

Olympic Agenda 2020+5 builds on the results of Olympic Agenda 2020, which has had a profound impact in the six years since its adoption in December 2014. It has strengthened the IOC and the Olympic Movement by introducing changes intended to make the Olympic Games fit for the future, safeguarded the Olympic values, and strengthened sport’s role in society. These achievements have laid solid foundations for the future.

Now, as the world continues to battle the global health crisis and its likely consequences for society at large, the IOC and the Olympic Movement need to seize on the successes of Olympic Agenda 2020 and continue to drive change for tomorrow.

The 15 recommendations that make up the Olympic Agenda 2020+5 have been developed through an inclusive and collaborative process. They are also the areas where sport and Olympism’s values can play a crucial role in turning challenges into opportunities.


• The key trends include:


• Each of the 15 recommendations is tangible with critical deliverables. The recommendations call upon the IOC and the Olympic Movement to:

Commenting on Olympic Agenda 2020+5, IOC President Thomas Bach explained: “When we adopted Olympic Agenda 2020 in 2014, we did so under the adage of ‘change or be changed.’ It still holds today. The world around us has continued to evolve. Nothing illustrates this better than the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences for society. As challenging as the circumstances may appear right now, we can turn these into opportunities if we draw the right conclusions. To do so, we must address this future environment without delay. We need to carry forward Olympic Agenda 2020. It is why we have developed Olympic Agenda 2020+5 and its recommendations with the IOC Executive Board and based on the feedback we received from stakeholders following the Olympism and Corona messages.”

The IOC EB has also finalized the Closing Report of Olympic Agenda 2020. This report describes each of the 40 recommendations of Olympic Agenda 2020. It explains the various activities for implementing them and their impact on the IOC and the Olympic Movement.

The Closing Report of Olympic Agenda 2020 will be submitted to the IOC Session in March for final approval.
