THE LEGACY OF GLASGOW 2014 LIVES ON IN COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY GAME CHANGER PROJECTS ACROSS SCOTLAND

More than a year on from Glasgow 2014 the 30 winning projects in the Game Changer Awards have been found to be delivering lasting legacy benefits to students, to college and university communities and to sport.

In the months before, during and after the Games, projects have taken place in colleges and universities across Scotland that were inspired by Glasgow 2014. The Game Changer Awards shone a light on these activities and recognised the best of them. Over 100 different projects from colleges and universities were judged on how closely they embodied the Glasgow 2014 legacy themes of connected, flourishing , sustainable and active. Thirty different projects took home gold, silver or bronze medals.

Many of the projects continue to grow in scale and ambition, benefiting greater numbers of people. Inspired by Glasgow 2014 and fuelled by a shared sense of being part of it, the legacy of Glasgow 2014 lives on in the Game Changer projects.

When you read the Award Winners Legacy Brochure it is very clear how these projects have made a difference and how they continue to do so.

“The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games is much more than a sporting event – it is an opportunity for businesses, organisations and communities across Scotland to benefit now and in the future”
Glasgow 2014

When the XX Commonwealth Games opens in Glasgow on Wednesday 23 July 2014, it will be the biggest event ever to be staged in Scotland.  The Game Changer Awards 2014 is a one-off event to recognise and celebrate the varied and significant contributions that Scotland’s colleges and higher education institutions are making to every aspect of the games and to sport in Scotland.
The Games are much more than a sporting event. They also represent an opportunity for Scotland to showcase its creative and cultural talent, to celebrate and extend connections with the nations and territories of the Commonwealth and delivery a lasting legacy. This spirit is reflected in the Game Changer awards with six different categories that recognise the huge breadth of contribution colleges and higher education institutions are making.
