The Legacy Youth Panel is a dedicated group of young people from the five Olympic host boroughs who generously give up their time to input constructively into the long term planning and urban design of their area.
Since its launch in October 2008 the Panel has submitted a formal response to the planning documents, created a Soundscape to accompany the flythrough of the proposed developments and have written a Manifesto to share their vision for the development of communities and the built environment following the Olympic Games. The Panel has presented their Manifesto to Ministers of Parliament and the Chief Executive of the Olympic Park Legacy Company.
They have also held two successful events for other young people -in 2009 at the Ocean in Hackney commissioning the Light Surgeons to provide a glimpse of the future with a mix of video and sounds onto a 3D model of the Park; and in 2010 in the LIFT in Canning Town presenting their findings through drama.
Fundamental continues to run the Legacy Youth Panel on behalf of the London Legacy Development Corporation
