Olympic Lives

East Londoners are being given an opportunity to share their views on how the Olympics is affecting their lives in an online archive developed by JISC and the University of East London (UEL). Their blogs, videos and audio will form a public library alongside a unique searchable archive of filmed focus groups and recorded oral histories which set out to track the social impact of the Olympics on the local area, providing a resource for teaching, learning, research and policy makers. East London Lives 2012 is a unique project as it aims to share the views of residents in the five host Olympic boroughs and their views on two key areas - community development and the health of local people in the lead up to the Games and beyond.
