The Youth Perspective on the Olympics (2010)

 

9781911634102

This is the second issue of IARS’ Youth Voice and the first of three to have a special focus on the 2012 Olympics 1. With the games only two years away, it is timely to reflect on the progress made in preparation for the games, its impact on the lives of young Londoners and the legacy they will be handed when the party is over. This reflection is done by young people in London, who tell us whether they think they are getting what was promised when the bid for the games was initially submitted in 2003 and what impact if any the games may have on their lives and that of their peers. The articles take the form of opinion pieces written in an essay style and each focuses on a distinct topic chosen by the young contributors and informed by IARS’ Youth Advisory Group.
