Detail

When London won the right to host the 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games we promised to create a sustainable legacy for London and the UK.

 

We are committed to ensuring that this legacy - the imprint that the 2012 Games make on the UK - begins to take shape now and lasts until well after 2012. 

If everyone joins in and takes part, we can make the following happen:

  1. Make the UK a world-leading sporting nation
  2. Transform the heart of East London
  3. Inspire a generation of young people to take part in local volunteering, cultural and physical activity
  4. Make the Olympic Park a blueprint for sustainable living
  5. Demonstrate the UK is a creative, inclusive and welcoming place to live in, visit and for business

The following publication is therefore a call to action - we have five years to make these commitments a reality, but only your imagination, commitment and involvement can make it happen.
