General results

  • 72% of projects would either not have taken place or would not have taken place with the same scale or profile if London had not been chosen to host the Games

  • More than half of the Inspire Projects (54%) have been running for 1 or more years

  • Over 10 million people have been involved in an Inspire project. 1 in 6 people in the UK has been involved in anInspire project.

  • 9 in 10 Project Leads say they have been inspired to run similar projects in the future, showing strong legacy potential.

  • 78% of Inspire projects are expected to continue after the Games

Fieldsof tension

Central control vs. Local implementation

Think national, act local

Momentum of the event vs. Sustainable legacy

Use the moment of the event as an accelerant for the final goal(s)


Lessons learned for the netherlands

USBO

Lessonslearnedfor the Netherlands

  • On step back: operationalization of ‘legacy’

  • On which themes do you focus? Why?

  • Is it important to determine national target groups?

  • What is the value of a ‘mark’?

    • If it is of value: how can you optimize the advantages and limit the disadvantages

    • What are the consequences for projects without a label?

  • How do you measure legacy?

    • Do you focus on output? # participants? Hours of carried out projects?

    • Do you focus on outcome? Less tangible, hard to measure or hard to assign to legacy projects


Lessons learned for the netherlands1

Lessonslearnedfor the Netherlands

  • Connect the main event (OG) to the social legacy project(s)

  • Facilitate as organizing committee a platform to use the advantages in relational and communication way with (potential) partners and sponsors. Organize network meetings or a digital platform and put a spotlight on the social projects

  • Limit the regulations about the visibility of the link with the event. Words as ‘Olympic’, ‘OG 2012’ or use the Olympic rings were prohibited in the Inspire Programme. The momentum of the event makes the social projects possible. Make visible that the project wasn’t carried out in the same way (or in the same size) if the event didn’t take place.


Lessons learned for the netherlands2

Lessonslearnedfor the Netherlands

  • Strive for visible and tangible long-term legacy

  • Re-use the facilities of the project by the target group (for example via schools)

  • Recurring annual events for a wide range of people (ClassicoGiro)

  • Make sure local sports organizations are involved.

  • Build ‘smart partnerships’. A global sports events usually attracts partners/sponsors with which you don’t get into contact normally. A welfare organization usually doesn’t cooperate with a commercial organization, but when the Olympic Games are organized in a country it is possible. Strive for structural partnerships.
