The initiative Coubertin meets Dunant combines fundamental Olympic values with Switzerland's humanitarian tradition and promotes talented young people regardless of their origin at the Talent-Campus Bodensee.A unique programme with nationally and internationally operating organizations and partners.
The youth athlete
Two pioneers from the 19th century, Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and Henry B. Dunant, founder of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), serve as namesake for a sports project of a different kind. Supported by Strong partners from the fields of sport and politics, we are pleased to offer two internationally oriented sports programmes for young people.
See below some of our Swiss sports talents that we have had the privilege to support since 2001. With "Coubertin meets Dunant", we make it our mission to give international talents the unique opportunity to excel on the neutral soil of Switzerland.
