As many as 20 youth teams from all over the country gathered here. The competitions will be held in football, volleyball, darts, tug-of-war and various creativity competitions. It is the 12th festival and it became a sports festival.

Usually, during the festival, people meet with experts in different spheres to discuss various issues.

Recently, there was held the forum “Open Dialogue”. About 400 people took part in the discussion concerning youth politics.

Igor Buzovsky, Deputy Head of Presidential Administration:
It’s not just pure interest, not just paying respect to one of the priorities in Belarus. We are interested in youth politics, because it is a chance to get results in organizing communications and getting the information that helps to develop different spheres.

There were a lot of discussions concerning the parliamentary elections in Belarus. The youth was interested in the course of the election campaign and the political activity of their peers.

Lidia Yermoshina, Chairwoman of the Central Election Commission of Belarus:
The most important thing is to participate in such public events as elections, for instance. I think this festival, this project is our strong ideology.

The festival “Olympia” is called a factory of thoughts. This event gives the youth to show their talents and creativity. This is very important because the youth is a strategic resource of Belarus.
