Summary: The project investigates intersectional inequities in sport participation for girls, women and non-binary people in Queensland by working with them to envision legacies for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Using a cocreation approach the research will identify how and what benefits can be achieved through legacy planning that engages with end-users who have historically been marginalised in sport. In doing so, the project will deliver evidence-based resources to improve engagement in sport and to build capacity and sustain meaningful change for communities and organisations.
