It has revealed its legacy plan for the Winter Olympics. Plus how it will re-use venues from the 2008 Summer Games. NEW


It intends to focus on seven themes: sports, society, economy, culture, environment, urban development and regional development.

"The early identification of this legacy framework, together with the already-identified governance structure that is responsible for monitoring progress of legacy projects, will help to ensure that the people of China enjoy long-lasting benefits far beyond the Games," a Beijing 2022 statement said.

Exact details though on exactly how this will be achieved have not been revealed.

Beijing 2022 will be using some of the venues used in the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The National Aquatics Center will become the Water Cube, and will stage the curling events.

The pool will be filled with retractable structures and making ice sheets above.

The National Indoor Stadium will host ice hockey events.

The Bird's Nest will hold the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

Legacy has been a major concern following last year's Winter Olympics in PyeongChang with doubts about the future use of venues.
