MOT strengthens youth's robustness and mastery of life

MOT was started by Norwegian top athletes after the Winter Olympics in 1994 with the objective to prevent social problems in society. The MOT Concept is based on the purpose of creating a safer society by strengthening youth's robustness, awareness and courage - courage to live, courage to care and courage to say no. The MOT Concept is like a key-card that is lent to schools and municipalities on a partnership premise.

The programmes strengthen the individual's robustness and awareness and promote robust and constructive relationships - safe class environments, inclusive school cultures and sustainable local communities.
