Glasgow 2014 embraces legacy

Sport Business News

On 23 July 2014, the XXth Commonwealth Games will commence in Glasgow and mark the start of 11 days of world–class sport and sporting achievement.

Glasgow 2014 offers a unique opportunity to showcase the city and an opportunity to transform Glasgow socially, economically and environmentally. Glasgow 2014 will help achieve a healthier, more vibrant city with its citizens enjoying and realising the benefits of sport and the wider, longer term economic, social, cultural and environmental benefits that Glasgow 2014 can help to deliver. Working in partnership across the city will help leave a lasting effect for all of Glasgows residents that will go far beyond the 11 day sporting event. Working closely with the Scottish Government, the Glasgow 2014 Legacy Framework sets out how the citys Vision will be achieved and the outcomes the city will deliver before, during and after the Games. Building on the significant economic and social progress already achieved in recent years, the Glasgow 2014 Legacy Framework sets the strategic direction up to 2019. Glasgow has developed six legacy themes as a reflection of peoples aspirations from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, and to help shape the direction of activity going forward. Through Glasgow 2014, the ambition is to leave Glasgow more Prosperous; more Active; with an enhanced International image and outlook; Greener; more Accessible; and more Inclusive.
