Even now, just under two years away from the 2022 Olympics, the legacy of the games is there for all to see.

China's ecology-first approach to the games has set a high bar for any future Olympics. In the 21st Century, it is now not enough for a country to just host a spectacular event, the Olympic Games now have to be sustainable and not have any lasting negative environmental impacts.

Beijing 2022 has proved that an Olympics can be sustainable and have an ecological conscience.

In addition, the Games have been used as a powerful tool for poverty alleviation outside the city of Beijing in Chongli.

Chongli, one of the two mountainous zones for the Games, had been an area that had yet to be lifted by China's economic development.
