IOC Congress 2009, Conclusions: The Digital Revolution A new strategy should be defined to enable the Olympic Movement to communicate more efficiently with its own membership and stakeholders as well as to allow for effective information dissemination, content diffusion and interactivity with the global population, in particular with the youth of the world. It should be an integrated strategy which includes the full coverage by all media and in all territories, of the Olympic Games, as well as the recognition of the new opportunities to communicate the fundamental principles and values of Olympism through all media In order to disseminate the values and vision of Olympism, the IOC and other stakeholders of the Olympic Movement should undertake a fundamental review of their communication strategies, taking into account the fast-moving developments in information technology and, more recently, the digital revolution The Olympic Movement should strengthen its partnership with the computer game industry in order to explore opportunities to encourage physical activity and the practice and understanding of sport among the diverse population of computer game users
