University project gains Olympic
Coventry University’s Phoenix Legacy
project has been successfully recognised as part of the London 2012 Inspire
programme, and has been awarded an Olympic Inspire mark.
Phoenix Legacy is a project which will provide volunteering
opportunities in sport, culture and events to students from the Sport &
Event Management degree programmes. The aims of the project are:
- To create a
sustainable legacy for volunteering at Coventry University
- Identify opportunities
where volunteers are fundamental to success.
- Securing relevant
experience for our students inspired by London 2012.
- Linking in with the
Coventry Ambassadors programme
- Working with key
partner organisations in the voluntary sector in the sub-region
The London 2012 Inspire programme enables non-commercial organisations
across the UK to link their events and projects to the London 2012 Games. The
Inspire programme focuses on six key themes: sport, culture, education,
sustainability, volunteering and business opportunities and skills.
Seb Coe, Chair of the
London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games said:
‘Phoenix Legacy is encouraging Coventry University students to
fulfil their potential. I am proud that with the help of partners such as
Coventry University, we are delivering our vision to use the power of
the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to boost participation in volunteering
opportunities both in sport and events.’
