What is One School One Country (OSOC)?
One School One Country, or OSOC, is a programme that encourages cultural exchange between international Competitors and students in the host city while promoting skilled careers represented at the Competition.

Schools across Lyon are partnered with a Member country or region to learn about their culture, traditions, and customs, while also learning about the skills which will be represented at the Competition by their adopted Competitors. In the spirit of exchange and sharing, the schools are invited to welcome Competitors on the morning of 10September 2024, the day of the Opening Ceremony, for a meeting with the students.
