This project is coming to an end so we are now thinking about evaluation and what we learnt. I am contributing to a Tool Kit which is aimed at passing on what we learnt.

Some of the things I believe to be unique about the project are:
  • Linking sports and arts into a large festival for young people
  • Being linked to a national event
  • Using student volunteers
  • Bringing elite athletes to events to mix with with young people
  • Holding events at universities so school pupils can see the facilities
  • Inspiring thousands of young people to try something new and to volunteer

It is really too early to look at legacy, but I do believe that the volunteering to take part in events will be popular.
Glasgow 2014 is starting to sign up volunteers now. I hope they are overwhelmed!
