In June 2020, Rennes 2 obtained the “Generation 2024" label, launched by the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games Bid Committee. Aimed at engaging and mobilizing young people across France, it presents the opportunity for our University to participate in numerous sporting events.

The "Generation 2024" label for schools and educational establishments seeks to build bridges between schools /universities and the sports world in order to encourage the physical education and sporting activities of young people. Comprised of 17-26 year olds from varying backgrounds, the label’s committee, made up of athletes, students, representatives of NGOs, representatives of Paris 2024 stakeholders and members of civil society, will enable the next generation to shape the Paris 2024 Games by: 

  • developing structuring projects with regional sports clubs
  • participating in Olympic and Paralympic promotional events
  • accompanying or welcoming high level athletes
  • opening the sports facilities of the establishments

Rennes 2 is participating in this important initiative as part of the French University Olympic Network (ROUF). The ROUF network broadcasts information concerning the organization of sports events, conferences, webinars, related to Olympism, everywhere in France and/or online. 

The university community is invited to participate in these many challenges!
