Legacy of Commonwealth Games in Glasgow shared at SVRN event

Dr Robert Rogerson presented some of his latest research into the legacy of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow at the Sports Volunteering Research network this week. Held in Northumbria University, his presentation to the conference challenged some of the existing assumptions made in terms of volunteering legacy from major events.  Robert is leading a project exploring the longer term impact of Games volunteering on those who took part as Host City Volunteers. Funded by the Big Lottery, the research teams includes colleagues from Glasgow Caledonian University and Glasgow Life.  In the presentation Robert asked what if there is no legacy – and explained how a novel approach to the research was being constructed on this basis.
