How to ensure your events have a long-term impact – webinar

Wednesday 18 November 2020

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 their webinar on Wednesday 18 November at 2pm to find out about their 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 their foundation in 2013, they’ve funded some fantastic community events across the UK and as well as bringing people together to learn, connect and play, they’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.

Who should watch the webinar?

If you’re involved in the planning and delivery of events and want to ensure that the impact is wider-reaching and longer-lasting than just the event and the attendees themselves, then this webinar is for you.

Webinar resources

The webinar will launch both the final report for the Moment to Movement research and an eLearning module that will help you apply the lessons from the research and support your own events to lead to long-term impact.  They will go through how to access the report and eLearning at the end of the webinar.
