The Olympic Truce call
At the dawn of the 21st century, the Olympic Truce once again calls upon humanity to lay down its weapons and work towards building the foundations of peace, mutual respect, understanding and reconciliation.
Implementing Truce means:
• Valuable time for constructing bridges of communication between adversaries
• Providing humanitarian support to children and adults in conflict-torn regions
• Helping to protect the damaged natural environment and contributing to the replenishment of vital natural resources
• Allowing the youth of the world to participate peacefully in the Olympic Games.
Beyond these, the Truce promises to create the necessary infrastructures for the continuation of dialogue and for the renewal of hope for reconciliation, both during the duration of the Games and throughout the four-year period of Olympiads.
