sustaining sport
A podcast about all the many challenges facing the world of sport and how sport itself can be a solution.

Madeleine Orr is an Assistant Professor of Sport Ecology at the University of Toronto. She is also a co-founder of The Sport Ecology Group and in early May 2024, she will be releasing a brand-new book called “Warming Up, How Climate Change is Changing Sport” which, as you may guess, focuses on how sport is adapting to and wrestling with climate change.

From seasonal sports' responses to climate shifts to using community sports facilities during natural disasters, this episode promises an eye-opening exploration of the environmental challenges and the hope that can spring from adversity. Maddy also shares with us how she navigates the double intersection of Sport with Sustainability and Academia with Industry. And we question the very definition of 'sustainability' in sports. Has this once-critical concept been diluted, and should we redefine the term to better align with the planet's needs while preserving the magic of sports in the future?
