The birth of the Olympic movement, started in 1894, is celebrated annually on June 23, to promote Olympic values, as well as physical activity and sport through the concept proposed by the IOC, “Move, learn and discover”.
This event is celebrated throughout France as part of the activities of the French national Olympic Committee. It is worth noting that for many years it has been an important event for the promotion of Olympism and sports, uniting people in the framework of PARIS-2024 project.
