Beijing 2022: Press release: Beijing 2022 Sets Up Coordination Committee to Ensure Lasting Games Legacy

Beijing 2022 Sets Up Coordination Committee to Ensure Lasting Games Legacy

To ensure that the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 bring long-lasting benefits to the citizens of China, the Beijing 2022 Legacy Coordination Committee was formed today at an inaugural ceremony and plenary session at the Beijing 2022 Headquarters in the Shougang Industrial Park on 1 November 2018.

The legacy governance structure was established to define who is responsible for delivering each legacy project before, during and after the Games, making Beijing 2022 the first Games to deliver a legacy plan in line with the IOC’s Strategic Legacy Approach.

Beijing 2022 will aim at creating abundant new legacies from the 2022 Games, while enhancing the legacies from the Beijing 2008 Games, promoting the sport, economic, social, cultural, environmental, urban and regional development in China.

The Legacy Coordination Committee is the deliberative and decision-making body for the legacy work of the Games. It will coordinate the internal and external legacy efforts related to Beijing 2022, by reviewing and advancing key plans and their relevant policies.

The Legacy Coordination Committee therefore includes such member entities as the General Administration of Sport of China, the China Disabled Persons’ Federation, the Beijing Olympic City Development Association (BODA), and Hebei Office for the Winter Olympics, as well as entities such as relevant ministries and commissions of the State, relevant government departments of Beijing Municipality, Hebei Province and Zhangjiakou City, and all departments (centres) of Beijing 2022.

At the inauguration ceremony, Mr. Zhang Jiandong, Vice Mayor of Beijing, Executive Vice President of Beijing 2022, and Chairman of the Legacy Coordination Commission emphasised that President Xi Jinping had given important instructions on the legacy efforts, and the IOC and IPC also specifically required that the Games leave positive legacies to China.

Others present at the meeting included Secretary General of Beijing 2022 and Executive Deputy Director of the Legacy Coordination Commission, Ms. Han Zirong, the Deputy Secretary General of Beijing 2022, the Deputy Director of the Legacy Coordination Commission, and representatives of relevant government agencies, Beijing 2022, the Beijing Municipal Government and the Hebei Provincial Government.

The legacy plan for the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 will be revealed later this month.

Beijing 2022 Launches Design Competition for Olympic and Paralympic Games Mascots

Beijing 2022 today launched a global design competition for the mascots of the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, inviting people from around the world to come up with original designs for these important ambassadors of the Games.

At a ceremony held in Beijing’s Olympic Park, Secretary of the CPC Beijing Municipal Committee and Beijing 2022 President Cai Qi declared the design competition officially open.

Mascots are among the most memorable symbols of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. Beijing 2022 looks forward to receiving creative design proposals from across the globe that embody Olympic and Paralympic values, affirm the vision of the 2022 Games, and reflect Chinese culture.

Designers could submit proposals to Beijing 2022 from October 20-31, 2018, in person or by mail. Beijing 2022 is expected to unveil the winning designs in the second half of 2019.

The launch ceremony for the design competition was held as part of an event to mark the 10-year anniversary of the Olympic Games Beijing 2008. The anniversary celebration also coincided with China’s 10th National Fitness Day, providing a fitting setting to look ahead to Beijing 2022 while celebrating the legacies of Beijing 2008.

The ceremony and the celebrations took place in the plaza between the “Bird’s Nest” National Stadium and the “Water Cube” National Aquatics Center. These two iconic Beijing 2008 venues will be used for Beijing 2022, serving as the opening and closing ceremonies venue and the curling venue, respectively.

When the new school year begins in September, elementary and secondary school students across China will be encouraged to create their own mascots for the Games in art classes, as part of Beijing 2022’s Olympic Education Program to engage more youth.
