A legacy of a more accessible and inclusive Queensland for all....
On Monday 13 June, we held the Brisbane 2032 Games Visioning Forum. With over 70 participants the Forum was opened by the Hon Stirling Hinchliffe MP, Minister for Tourism, Innovation and Sport and Minister Assisting the Premier on Olympics and Paralympics Sport and Engagement.
Three speakers, including two former Paralympians Geoff Trappett and Karni Liddell and Dr Sharon Boyce set the scene for how we can work together to create an inclusive, accessible games and ensure the legacy we leave after the Games ensures positive outcomes for Queenslanders with disability in terms of more accessible housing, transport and infrastructure. Participants then spent time in breakout rooms sharing ideas. QDN aims to develop a blueprint for government where people with disability are actively contributing to the work ahead in terms of planning for the Games.
This report is the start and the beginning of an exciting journey of working with major stakeholders and others in the community, to be able to shape and influence the Brisbane 2032 Games, leaving a legacy for all of world class accessibility and inclusivity, We all have an important role in bringing this vision to life with the Games only 10 years away and a lot of work to do. The work starts now and we look forward to working with you and other key member of our community on this journey.
