Participants, speakers and Beyond the Games partners were responsible for taking forward the conversations that happened throughout the day. They were invited to provide feedback and recommendations based on deep discussion that took places during breakout panels in the afternoon of the event.
- Integrate children’s needs, human rights and ethics at the heart of all major sporting events from bid through to delivery
- All major sporting event organising committees should be required to include a ‘legacy team’ to work alongside the bid and delivery teams
- Ensure greater transparency by formally assessing legacy plans as a part of the bidding process for major events and greater accountability throughout delivery and post-event evaluation
- All organising committees should identify groups that require targeted outreach to ensure accessibility to the events and have a plan in place to do so
- Organisers of major sporting events should proactively build partnerships with grassroot equality and diversity organisations to ensure the role of civil society
- Equality, diversity and inclusion should be mainstreamed at all levels to benefit both the event itself and ensure legacy
- Major events should focus on promoting collaboration of existing local partners – government, sport and community - to create a more sustainable legacy
- Legacy planning must include long-term options for funding of programmes to ensure growth and development is sustained
- Major events should leveraged to ensure long-term employment opportunities for young people
