Answered By: 
The Mayor

Older people have an important role to play in the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. As volunteers, employees and entrepreneurs, older people will be able to contribute valuable experience and skills. In addition, the Cultural Olympiad will provide an opportunity to use creativity to build bridges between generations. There are also the obvious benefits of an improved public transport system with increased accessibility and security.
