Spirit of 2012 and InFocus’ Moment to Movement research collates ideas and best practice for creating lasting legacies for events whether they are in-person or online. Join us at our webinar on Wednesday 18 November at 2pm GMT to find out about our learning and get practical advice for turning the energy of a single event into wider social change. This will be a 90-minute session with an introduction from Kim Leadbeater, Ambassador for the Jo Cox Foundation and sister of the late Jo Cox MP.

Background to the webinar

Spirit of 2012 is the official London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games legacy funder. Since our foundation in 2013, we’ve funded some fantastic community events across the UK and as well as bringing people together to learn, connect and play, we’ve seen that many events are the start of something more for the people that take part.

Working closely with three organisations – WOW Foundation, Springboard and Jo Cox Foundation – Spirit of 2012 and InFocus produced a roadmap to help explain how events can turn into longer term action. The research establishes a simple set of principles that make it more likely that single inspirational moments can turn into longer turn movements and considers the barriers that might prevent them from happening. The video below will tell you all you need to know.
