The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) will be promoting the principles of the Olympic Truce in schools and colleges through the Get Set education programme.

Current activities include a Film Shorts project encouraging 14 to 25 year-olds to create films to articulate their understanding and experiences of truce.

LOCOG's plans for Get Set for the 2011-12 academic year are being developed and will be announced this year.

In addition, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is currently considering options to promote the principles of the truce.
