How would you define event legacy?
Definition of Legacy
“Tangible and intangible elements of large-scale events left to future generations of a host country where these elements influence the economic, physical and psychological well-being at both community and individual levels in the long term” (Li and McCabe 2013)
Examples - Positive Legacy
Increase in tourism
Local residential improvements
Increase in sport participation
Awareness of culture
Promotion of host city/country
“a legacy may, in fact be either positive or negative depending on the point of view or on (subjective) personal opinion” (Chappelet 2012:81).
Watch this video on the Legacy of London 2012 and identify as many examples of legacy as you can
Irrespective of the time of production and space, legacy is all planned and unplanned, positive and negative, tangible and intangible structures created for and by a sport event that remain longer than the event itself
The material and non-material effects produced directly or indirectly by the sport event, whether planned or not, that durably transform the host region in an objectively and subjectively positive or negative way.
(Chappelet and Junod 2006)

Examples of legacy (negative)

The measurement of a legacy should start with the changes events create. (Gratton and Preuss 2008)
Based on the definition "Legacy is
structures created through a sport event that remain after the event" (Preuss 2010)

- Triple Bottom Line
The triple bottom line (Economic, Social and Environmental), are readily used in order to assess the impacts of mega event legacy
First suggested by John Elkington in 1997, advocates that the bottom line of performance should no longer be centred around economic outcomes and social and environmental facts should be included
