THE RAP FRAMEWORK

 

Framework

Once the competition is over, the success of GC2018 will be determined by the long term legacy the event has delivered. This RAP is the culmination of a range of actions identified by GOLDOC and OCG with the support of Games Partners and other Government agencies. As planning progresses towards 2018, this RAP will evolve and be updated to reflect initiatives for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Through this approach, this RAP will ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are provided with meaningful opportunities to participate in GC2018, extending beyond the traditional inclusion of culture within the Opening Ceremonies, and contributing towards positive lasting legacy for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
