Sports: a developmental and economic impact on populations

Many sports federations have their seat in Switzerland and more particularly in the Canton of Vaud. In addition, thanks to Pierre de Coubertin, Lausanne is the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee (IOC); the city is also home to the Olympic Museum.

Sport is also used to enhance the development and well-being of people as well as a vector for values of solidarity, respect and fair play.
