Our recommendations

Our Go For Gold report includes 46 recommendations which detail an economic and social legacy framework for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, focussing on leaving behind a world best in social inclusion legacy.

Developed with Urbis, the report warns that large-scale events like the Games will cause displacement of existing populations without early interventions to prevent rising rental costs and ensure adequate housing supply.
