Olympic infrastructure : global problems of local communities on the example of Rio 2016, PyeongChang 2018, and Krakow 2023 / Bartosz Dendura

Dendura, Bartosz

Since the document entitled Agenda 21 was approved by the UN at the Earth Summit in 1992, environmental protection has become the mainstay of the discussion among the Olympic family, and the problem of sustainable planning has become one of the main features of published reports.The goal of the article is to investigate whether these ambitions have been actually reflected in the measures taken by authorities and encompassing the period between proclaiming them as Games organisers, during the sports event itself, and during the post-Games period. The author focused on the two most recent Games (Rio 2016 and PyeongChang 2018) in order to verify whether the ambitious assumptions that filled all manners of reports have been made a reality.
