The Organising Committee of the 3rd Winter Youth Olympic Games has combined the pleasant with the useful.

Thanks to plogging (a type of physical activity invented in Sweden) jogging turns into a social useful activity.

Participants pick up litter on their way while jogging after which it is recycled.

In Switzerland people do plogging since 2018 but only with the help of Lausanne 2020 Organising Committee President Virgini Faivre and her staff members it became popular.

Such actions will be held every 20th of the month until the start of the Games.

The 3rd Winner Youth Olympic Games will be held in Lausanne from January 10-19, 2020.

1880 athletes aged 15-18 from 70 countries will compete in 16 winter sports.
