The Village has demonstrated that it is possible to live in comfortable, modern accommodation and be more sustainable. We don't have to go back to living in caves or build houses made of straw. For London 2012 to establish this milestone for sustainable living is a major achievement to be celebrated.
Most of us lower division football fans can now relax and start thinking about next season. Start hoping. And planning. We're mostly aware of which players are leaving our club and everyone is after a solid centre half and 20 goals-a-season forward we all think we need to be a decent side next year.
With the summer fast approaching, the Olympics and Jubilee season upon us, the web-savvy amongst us are turning to 'self-tracking' to get the most out of our time. The new trend of using apps, gizmos and lifehacks is a lot more than just being techy though: it's giving people the ideas for working smarter.
When most people think about London 2012, it's often about issues such as transport, security or the elite athletes themselves. But there is a side to the Games that can often be overlooked. Sport has the power to change lives and empower young people. Sport can bring schools and communities together, promote a healthy lifestyle and give young people an incentive to attend school regularly. It was for these reasons that I became an ambassador for International Inspiration - London 2012's international sports legacy programme - in 2009.
