ASSIGNMENT QUESTION

Task: Write a report of 2000 words answering the 2-part question in the box below.

Question:

The government is bidding to host the Olympics. You have been asked to analyse the various impacts of hosting such an event. Use this analysis to recommend ways of maximising the benefits and minimising the challenges of hosting the Olympics (100 marks).

You should analyse the impact from a variety of perspectives, however, your report should cover a MAIN PERSPECTIVE relating to your degree. This part of your analysis should be the longest (approximately 600 words).

For students studying a degree related to Health and Social Care the main perspective should be The Health Impacts.

These might include:

  • the legacy of sports facilities
  • issues relating to health and safety
  • issues relating to potential public health risks

For students studying a degree related to Business the main perspective should be The Economic Impacts.

These might include:

  • job creation
  • costs to the tax payer
  • future trade

For students studying a degree related to Tourism and Events Management the main perspective should be: The Impacts on the Tourism, Hospitality and Events Industries.

These might include:

  • short-term effects on the hospitality sector
  • logistical challenges of hosting the event
  • longer term influences on the country as a tourism destination

You will also need to analyse two other perspectives (approximately 300 words on each). These perspectives are:

The impacts from an environmental perspective.

These might include:

  • carbon footprint and pollution
    • sustainability (e.g. long-term improvements; environmental awareness; technological innovation)

The impacts from a social perspective.

These might include:

  • intangible benefits (e.g. social cohesion; morale; entertainment)
  • regeneration opportunities
