Beijing 2022 Creates Legacy Commission to Protect Olympic Legacy

By Mei Manuel, November 07, 2018 00:11 AM


In order to ensure that the 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing continue to bring benefits to the Chinese people, the Beijing 2022 Legacy Coordination Committee was established on Thursday at the Beijing 2022 Headquarters.

The commission is the first of its kind to adapt the International Olympic Committee's Strategic Legacy Approach, which would determine who would lead the project during and after the Games.

Under the program, Beijing 2022 will aim to create abundant new legacies from the Games, while improving the current legacies used at the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympic Games, promoting sporting, economic, social, cultural, environmental, urban and regional development in China.

The Legacy Coordination Committee will also coordinate the internal and external legacy efforts related to Beijing 2022, by reviewing and advancing key plans and their relevant policies.

Xinhua reports that the Committee includes the State Sport General Administration, the China Disabled Persons' Federation, the Beijing Olympic City Development Association (BODA), and the Hebei Office for the Winter Olympics, as well as relevant ministries and government departments of Beijing municipality, Hebei Province and Zhangjiakou city.

At the inauguration ceremony, Beijing Vice Mayor Zhang Jiandong, who is also the executive vice president of Beijing 2022 and chairman of the Legacy Coordination Commission, emphasised that the IOC and IPC (International Paralympic Committee) specifically required that the Games leave positive legacies to China.

The legacy plan for the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 will be revealed later this month.
