The 2032 Sunshine Coast Legacy Plan Community Reference Group (CRG) will help shape the region’s legacy plan arising from council being a key delivery partner in the 2032 Games.

Established in early 2022 and chaired by two-time Paralympian and USC Public Health Lecturer Dr Bridie Kean, the group met on several occasions to develop a Games legacy vision and aspirations for our future generations, 10 years before during and after. This is our 10+10+ Vision.

The Community Reference Group comprises 16 community representatives with Sunshine Coast Council represented by Mayor Mark Jamieson and Councillor Maria Suarez. The community representatives cover a wide range of interests which include First Nations; People with a Disability; Sport and Recreation; Business, Arts and Culture; Tourism and Events; Young People; Environment; and Education.
