‘Positive Legacy’: Mayor’s Mission To Boost Our Games

Sunshine Coast Council

The program is designed to help future host cities and Games Delivery Partners, like the Sunshine Coast Council, to gain useful insights into what it takes to host the biggest sporting event in the world.

Transport requirements, community impact, the Cultural Olympiad and local business opportunities are high on the agenda for the Mayor’s visit (from 24 July 2024 to 1 August 2024) as well as observing events that are proposed to be held on the Sunshine Coast in 2032.

The Mayor’s attendance will be critical to enabling Council to continue to maximise every opportunity afforded in its role as Games Delivery Partner and Co-Host City of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Brisbane 2032.

Mayor Natoli said she was fiercely committed to ensuring that the Games leave a positive legacy for our region before and well beyond 2032.

“This is truly an exciting time for our Sunshine Coast as we approach eight years to go to Brisbane 2032,” Mayor Natoli said.

“We have lots to do, and even more to learn about hosting what is arguably the largest global event.

“I am so honoured to have the opportunity to be on the ground at Paris 24 to observe and to gain valuable information that I can share with my Council colleagues and our community to guide our preparations in the coming years.”

The Mayor will be travelling alongside other Olympic and Paralympic Games Brisbane 2032 Delivery Partner representatives.

Mayor Natoli elected to pay for her own flights and Council will pay for incidental travel costs, up to $1000.

Accommodation, on-ground transport, meals and event attendance will be funded by the International Olympic Committee.

In 2032, the Sunshine Coast is proposed to host nine Olympic and Paralympic events across four locations.
