Our mission

O_LIVE project: OLympism In Values Education. The name is a reference to the olive tree as it symbolizes peace, friendship and at the same time to the ancient Greek Olympic Games, where an olive wreath was the winner’s prize.

We are motivated by our strong belief in the power of education to help the individual to navigate life and contribute to society.
