On 30 March 2023, sportanddev hosted a webinar on the topic of “Sport and Environment”. The webinar was part of sportanddev’s spotlight on this topic, which also included a call for articles, published articles, and an upcoming website page.
With support from the Swedish Postcode Foundation, sportanddev’s spotlight aimed to increase awareness and knowledge of the topic, and to increase debate and dialogue.
Questions addressed in the call for articles and the webinar included:
- How can sport support sustainability and contribute to the environment-related Sustainable Development Goals?
- What best practices exist in sport for development programming that promotes learning about the environment (such as waste/litter, ecosystem, carbon footprint, conservation, climate change, etc.)?
- How can major sporting events reduce their carbon footprint?
- What do you see as future opportunities for addressing the environment in and through sport?
