Embracing 2018

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) is about more than a spectacular sporting event. It is also about the opportunities and benefits that hosting the Commonwealth Games will bring to the Gold Coast and all of Queensland before, during and after the event.

On our journey towards 2018, there will be opportunities for Queenslanders to be involved in the Commonwealth Games through a broad range of legacy projects. While some will compete in GC2018 at the highest level, others will give their time and effort to make the event happen. Some people will be motivated to take up a sport themselves or get involved in organising sports for their community.

We can all contribute directly or indirectly to building positive and lasting benefits from hosting GC2018. The Embracing 2018 legacy strategy continues to be reviewed and refined to ensure the aspirations of all Games partners are identified. With solid planning before, during and after GC2018, Queensland will continue to benefit from GC2018 long after the Closing Ceremony.

To find out more, visit the Embracing 2018 website and embrace the opportunity.
