A legacy in the South of the City

The proposal of Buenos Aires 2018 is to serve as a catalyst – through cultural, sport, and educational activities based on Olympism and its values, in addition to the infrastructure works that are on the way – for human, urban and social development in the city. The goal is to leave a real mark and legacy before, during, and after the Games, by bringing sports closer to people and creating activities that promote culture and education.

Therefore, while we wait for the Youth Olympic Games to arrive, we have prepared a series of inspiring events to encourage youth to enjoy sports and share the Olympic values of friendship, respect, and excellence.

170 activities have already taken place with the involvement of almost 100,000 young people!
