AISTS SUSTAINABLE SPORT & EVENTS OPEN MODULE (2 DAYS)
Sport and sport events have the potential to impact our society in both positive and negative ways. The ability of a sport federation or organisation to balance the economic, environmental and social impact of their activities, including events they host, organise or govern is critical to the future development of their sport. We are living on this planet as if we had another one to go to.
Now more than ever, sports managers and event organisers have the opportunity to positively harness sport for the benefit of society, and by doing so, contribute to their organisation’s bottom line
THE NEXT SSE WILL TAKE PLACE FROM THE 2ND – 3RD OF APRIL, 2020.
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SHORTLY.
Over two days the Sustainable Sport & Events Open Module provides concrete examples of what leading sports organisations, such as the Olympic Games, Formula E and North-American leagues such as the NHL and NBA are doing. The module will take place at the Synathlon located on the University of Lausanne Campus in Switzerland.
Participants will learn from the speakers and from each other about the various ways of integrating sustainability into the core of their businesses, be it a temporary endeavor such as an event or in their daily operations.
Throughout both days, group work and discussions will challenge the existing ideas of sustainability in sport, with a particular focus on the business case for sustainability while simultaneously addressing the demands of multiple stakeholders.
