Long-term benefits of 2012 Olympics come under the lecture spotlight

The long-term environmental benefits of the 2012 Olympic Games will come under scrutiny during a host of lectures this month.

Three themes will include Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park: creating a thriving place; inclusive design: a legacy of accessible environments from London 2012; and towards a healthier nation: taking stock of London 2012 and moving on.

The events are free and will include Q&A sessions for professionals, students, academics and the public. Panel members include Legacy Corporation, Olympic legacy partners or stakeholders and specialist academic speakers.

The annual lecture series is in its fifth year and the first lecture on creating a thriving place on 22 November at London South Bank University will include speakers from the corporation, HARCA housing association and Lend Lease.

The second lecture, on inclusive design on 29 November at Royal College of Art, will include speakers from the Greater London Authority, Brunel University and access consultancy Design 4 Inclusion

The final lecture on health on 6 December at Brunel University, will include speakers from the corporation and host university, London Borough of Newham and NHS East London and the City.
