The Challenge We Face

  • “A victory podium is only 22 inches high but the view from the top stretches forever.” (VANOC)
  • “We have some sporting facilities, are well placed and have a number of enthusiastic staff/students who wish to get involved. We wish to get actively involved but at this moment are unsure of the roles we can play.” (Podium Survey Respondent)

How can we use the power of the world’s largest sporting event to act “as a catalyst for lasting change in our country.” (Gordon Brown)
