Step 1: Identify the Site

Now you have chosen your Option and decided on your events or cultural activities you need to identify a suitable site in your neighbourhood to develop your project. Any sporting or cultural activity will need a designated site where you’ll build your venues and host your events.

If you’re planning Option A to host the whole Games you’ll need to find a big site, the equivalent of 357 football pitches or 2.5km2. Options B & C need much less space, so think about smaller sites nearer to your school or even within the school grounds.
