RIO 2016 OLYMPIC GAMES SUSTAINABILITY AND LEGACY STORIES
The Rio 2016 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games inserted sustainability into their DNA from the very beginning. However, for the wider public, it remains difficult to understand how sustainable sport events work in practice.
The Rio 2016 Olympic Games Sustainability and Legacy Stories booklet is a selection of stories illustrating good practices undertaken during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by National Federations, hospitality houses and partner organizations.
The publication strives to present these initiatives in an easy-to-understand format, highlighting the importance of sustainability and legacy surrounding sports events. The concepts surrounding sustainability and legacy can sometimes be difficult to put in words, and thus, this booklet puts forward real examples which were implemented during the Games and which might inspire similar practices for future sports events.
