Discovering the Future through the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games

Toward A Sustainable Social Infrastructure

2015/05/11

The effects of hosting large-scale cultural and sports events have often been focused on its economic aspects. Recent years, however, have seen emphasis on achieving a sustainable society by utilizing events as a means to strategically create tangible and intangible legacies, such as facilities used after the event and expanded international exchanges. In the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games, various efforts were made in the preparation, staging, and post-event phases based on international standards regarding event sustainability management systems so that the effects of the event would be economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable. The 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games should strive to build on London’s legacies, giving consideration to social and urban sustainability in early stages and taking action according to plans and strategies.
