On Wednesday 5 June we will be hosting a conference in Easterhouse Sport Centre, Glasgow to mark ten years since the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and celebrate the #PowerofSport.

The event is being organised in partnership between Spirit of 2012, Inspiring Scotland, Actify, Basketball Scotland, Evaluation Support Scotland, Scottish Sports Futures, and University of the West of Scotland.

Tickets are free and can be found at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/876060850587?aff=oddtdtcreator

Since the1988 Garden City Festival and European Capital of Culture 1990, Glasgow gradually built its reputation as an events city, putting sporting and cultural events at the heart of its regeneration. For many, the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games represented a culmination of that journey. Ten years on, what do we know about the long-term impact of the Games? What do the public think the lasting benefits have been? And how can we continue to build the legacy even now?

Glasgow 2014 was also a chance to think about sporting legacies differently.  It kickstarted our partnership working at Spirit of 2012 with the Scottish Government, Sport Scotland and others on projects to reach the least active, and use sport to change lives. The conference will share learning from ten years of funding in the physical activity sector about approaches that improve wellbeing and increase connection.

Join us for a day of workshops and discussions on what Glasgow’s story can tell us about events across the UK, and find out more about the power of sport.
