The legacy of Glasgow 2014 focuses on making Scotland a stronger nation with healthier communities and a flourishing economy, giving every Scot the same pride, commitment and passion so that together we can make the whole of Scotland fit for the future and enhance our reputation internationally.
The legacy will benefit Scots across the whole country through a series of events and activities, and building and infrastructure developments that will get businesses flourishing; people being more active; school children understanding their place in the world; young people taking on skills and training; sports people improving their performance and much more.
The benefits can be broken down into four themes:
Active, Connected, Sustainable and Flourishing.
An Active Scotland – helping Scotland’s population to be more physically active through sport, exercise, dance, play and active travel and developing the Community Sports Hubs programme across the country.
A Connected Scotland – learning, culture and developing international links form the basis of this theme through using the Games to encourage a better understanding and appreciation of the rich heritage, culture and arts of other countries and Scotland’s place in the world.
A Sustainable Scotland – showing how the Games are accelerating the creation of a regenerated, well-designed and sustainable community in the East End of Glasgow and how the Games will act as an exemplar for environmental standards.
A Flourishing Scotland - maximising the opportunities the Games present to strengthen Scottish businesses, to provide pathways to employment and volunteering, and to enhance Scotland’s international profile as a tourism and events destination.
