The Olympic movement is not only about sports competition, but also about cultural and environmental protection. Therefore, sports, culture and environmental protection become the three pillars of the Olympic activities.   Further, cultural sharing, sports education and environmental protection should be applied to promote people's physical and mental harmony. Apart from focusing on the gold medals in the Olympic Games, we should also pay attention to the transmission of Olympic values and spirit, to display Olympic culture.

The mission of this commission is to bring the Olympic culture to the mind of people all over the world ,and to pass it down from generation to generation, through forum, conferences, Olympic cultural and artistic activities, sports and literary competitions, sports and painting, and the International Olympic Academy, in cooperation with UNESCO(United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).
