The IOC Executive Board (EB) meeting and the 127th IOC Session will be held in Monaco, Principality of Monaco, from 5 to 9 December 2014 (EB from 5 to 7 December/Session on 8 and 9 December).
The 127th IOC Session will take decisions on key policy issues following the consultation process and discussions initiated by IOC President Thomas Bach as part of Olympic Agenda 2020 – a strategic roadmap that will shape the future of the Olympic Movement.
Olympic Agenda 2020 is addressing three major themes: sustainability, credibility and youth, and the direction of the reforms has been widely endorsed and supported by the entire Olympic Movement so far.
The Session in Monaco is expected to make key decisions in the following areas:
- a possible new strategy for the bidding procedure will be addressed, in particular how the Olympic Games fit best into the social, environmental and long-term development plan of a host region;
- possible changes to the procedure for the composition of the Olympic Programme. This could include proposals for a more flexible approach by adopting an event-based rather than a sport-based approach to the composition of the programme;
- the establishment of an Olympic TV channel to help increase the presence of sports and the promotion of the Olympic values year round and worldwide.
