Start the conversation

People across the country are being called on by Queensland’s Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport to share their hopes and dreams for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy through a national survey.

Also announced by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is a Brisbane 2032 Legacy Forum to take place in the city on 22 March at the Royal International Convention Centre.

Ms Palaszczuk said she wanted everyone to share the pride of hosting the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the golden opportunity such an honour represented.

“The hopes and dreams online survey gives Australians everywhere their say on the legacy they want for the host nation of the Brisbane 2032 Games,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“Australia’s legacy ideas — our brightest hopes and dreams — will be road-tested at next year’s Brisbane 2032 Legacy Forum.”

The Forum is to bring together 500 Australian community and business leaders, athletes and Games delivery partners to start mapping out the 2032 Games Legacy Plan.

Queensland Minister Assisting the Premier on Olympics and Paralympics Sport and Engagement, Stirling Hinchliffe said the Brisbane 2032 Legacy Committee would bring the priorities of Queensland communities to the Legacy Forum.

“The 12 members of the committee are working hard in their communities and hearing the voices of thousands of Queenslanders on legacy,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

“Next year’s Legacy Forum combines the committee’s work on Queensland-specific legacy with the hopes and dreams of the nation.”

He said identification and planning for the legacy needed to be done early to maximise the benefits of the 2032 Games over the next 20 years to 2042.

“The hopes and dreams survey and Brisbane’s 2032 Legacy Forum will be important for developing the bigger picture of what Games legacy looks like for Queenslanders and Australians,” the Minister said.

Mr Hinchliffe said Brisbane’s Legacy Forum would deliver a draft vision, draft themes and a list of priorities for further feedback.
