The inaugural Beyond the Games – Living the Values is an integral part of the game-changing ambitions of Glasgow 2014. The Commonwealth Games is one of the world’s leading multi-sports events, uniting the nations and territories of the Commonwealth, home to a third of the world’s population, through sport. Held every four years, the Games bring together people from the most diverse environments on earth, from different religious, cultural and economic backgrounds, in a spirit of friendship and positive endeavour.
Beyond the Games – Living the Values will focus on three main themes that are at the heart of the social development legacy for the Games: - Humanity - Equality – Destiny. It will bring together international influencers from sport, business and the civic realm as agents for innovation and change.
For one day, they will gather in Glasgow to celebrate the incredible work that is already being achieved through the spirit of the Games, and set a challenge to its members and supporters to commit to positive change over the four-year period to the next Commonwealth Games, to be held in Australia’s Gold Coast in 2018. Progress will be mapped and measured on an annual basis by the CGF’s General Assembly, with the next full event taking place as part of the next Commonwealth Games.
Through these Games, there is a unique opportunity to deliver a lasting legacy and there are numerous opportunities for people, businesses, organisations and communities in Glasgow and across the whole of Scotland to get involved as the excitement builds.
This event is by invitation only. To register your interest or for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
