Creating a lasting legacy

Hosting Brisbane 2032 will create a lasting legacy for our community, our economy and our environment in the lead up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the 10 years after. 





ideas collected for the Brisbane 2032 Legacy Strategy

Audacious future thinking 

The Brisbane 2032 Hopes and Dreams survey invited people from across Queensland, Australia and the world to dream big and think about ways that our region can be made even better by 2042 because we are hosting the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 

The Brisbane 2032 Legacy Forum, held in March 2023, tapped 500 of Australia’s best, brightest and boldest minds to help shape a 10+10+ year Legacy Strategy that will make the most of the unique opportunity hosting the Games brings, acting locally for global impact. 

Elevate 2042 is the result of thousands of voices, from all walks of life, and it represents our shared 20-year vision for a lasting Games legacy.
