The citizens of Salt Lake were responsibles for the great success of 2002 Winter Olympic Games. The Urban Games project backs Salt Lake citizenship as the main creative force to achieve a vibrant city center. Citizens are the creative nucleus, we are the city!!!
By participating in the Olympic Games athletes develop different Olympic Skills such as strength, speed, power, agility, strategy, accuracy, resistance or comradeship. Participating in URBAN GAMES should also imply the training of different Urban Skills. The URBAN SKILLS are the capacities acquired by citizens allowing them to understand, use and build a lively, shared and sustainable city.
