One of the characteristics of that time was broadening the multisport approach where members practised various sports, often depending on the season of the year. In 1990 the organisation turned its name into “HAŠK Mladost of the University of Zagreb” (Hrvatski akademski športski klubovi Mladost), receiving the approval of the Rector of the University of Zagreb to use the name of the University. Throughout history members of the HAŠK Mladost sports won 40 Olympic medals.
Currently HAŠK Mladost is the largest academic sports society in Croatia, consisting of 29 sport sections (of which most famous are Rowing, Athletic, Water Polo, Swimming and Volleyball) with more than altogether 4,100 sport athletes.

In particular, to uphold the observance of the Olympic Truce, calling for all hostilities to cease during the Olympic Games and beyond, and to mobilize the youth worldwide in the cause of Peace.
During the first years, the International Olympic Truce Centre’s absolute priority was that the Truce is respected during all Olympic Games. Since 2010, the Centre’s activities have expanded into the field of education. Most of the emphasis is put in educating the youth with the use of the power of sport, so that the Olympic Ideals can take root and flourish. It is the use of sport as a tool to instill the Olympic Values that can help the young generation gradually build a Culture of Peace.
