Share this talk:
10 years on from London 2012 what is the lasting and positive legacy on the 2012 London games - Infrastructure, leisure and sport, expertise, sustainability? How can other cities learn from this? Has the movement changed during the upheavals of the last 2 years? Each panelist will say a few words about what they feel has been significant and, perhaps, where the impact was less than hoped, before opening up to audience discussion.

Sir John Armitt, National Infrastructure Commission and former Chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority for 2012
