Changing the game: Calling for greater civic participation in Mega Sport Event infrastructure

Protecting Civic Space — Report Launch/Publication

United Kingdom — May 20, 2021 @ 9:00am - 5:30am GMT-00:00


On Thursday 20 May Engineers Against Poverty will publish its latest research on the need for increased accountability in Mega Sports Event (MSE) infrastructure.

Recommendations outlined in our latest paper could significantly improve the governance of MSEs, ensuring infrastructure meets people’s needs and enhances their trust in decision-makers.

We focus on addressing shortcomings on the legal structure of sports organisations, secrecy of information and a lack of civic space. We call for more effective methods to help improve the capacity of citizens to express their views and the ways they can do so.
