GC2018 Reconciliation Action Plan

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) is the first event of its kind to have a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

This is the result of a commitment from Games Partners to deliver legacy outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and has been led by the Queensland Government through the Office of the Commonwealth Games (OCG) and the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC).

RAPs provide a framework for organisations to realise their vision for reconciliation.

RAPs are practical plans of action based on relationships, respect and opportunities.

The GC2018 RAP will leave a lasting and meaningful legacy through:

  • Employment and training
  • Procurement
  • The showcasing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and cultures
  • Building a culturally capable workforce.

The GC2018 RAP has been developed in consultation with Reconciliation Australia, members of the Yugambeh language group, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Queensland.

It provides a unique opportunity and a guiding framework for other Commonwealth Games host nations to show leadership towards reconciliation with their First Peoples.
