The HBTI was a key legacy programme of Glasgow 2014, a dominant sector of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. David Grevemberg stated that “Legacy is really why these Games have been brought to Scottish shores in the first place”.
The Host Broadcasting Training Initiative is in place to train and nurture talent in Scotland to fill an existing skills gap for not only the broadcast of the Games, but for years to come. Over 200 students have gained practical experience with SVGTV impressing lecturers, broadcast professionals and the outside world. A lasting legacy has been built and puts the strength of live sports coverage in Scotland at no doubt for a generation of students.
But there’s more to Legacy 2014 than just the HBTI, infact there are 120 projects across Scotland improving the skills, lives and communities of the country with many projects running years past the closing ceremony.
Murrayfield was the host for the Legacy 2014 Celebration as part of Legacy Week, recognising and publicising the many and varied projects, funds and initiatives that are using the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as the catalyst for change in the world.
David Grevemberg talked to Creative Loop about his ideas on Legacy:
“…people working smarter together on a common purpose with a common ambition.” – David Grevemberg, CEO Glasgow 2014.
