The Commission for a Sustainable London 2012 (CSL) and the Institution for Environmental Sciences (IES) have worked in partnership to produce a special edition of a journal dedicated to the sustainability of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The IES journal, entitled London 2012 – Sustainable Legacy? offers a comprehensive look at the sustainability successes, challenges and learning from the Games in London. Featuring a range of articles covering topics from health and the environment to ethics and the sponsorship of major events, the majority of articles have been written by CSL Commissioners and Secretariat, experts in their respective fields.
Guest authors also include Kathryn Firth (Chief of Design at the London Legacy Development Corporation), Richard Jackson (former Principle Sustainability Manager at the Olympic Delivery Authority) and Jonathan Pauling (Senior Policy Officer for the Greater London Authority who specialises in food).
The journal has a special joint introduction from Jonathan Porritt CBE (Co-Founder of Forum for the Future) and the Commission’s own Chair, Shaun McCarthy.
The journal will be available for public access later in the year, accessed via the IES website.
