The British Association for Sustainable Sport Announces Invitation to Fifth Annual Sustainable Sport Conference and Playing Better Challenge.
The Lord’s Cricket Ground, London to play host to sustainable sport initiative
London, 19th September 2014: Sustainable Sports group BASIS will be hosting their Annual Sustainable Sports Conference on Thursday 19th November 2015 at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London.
All delegates are welcome, with early bird tickets available through to Midnight 30th September. Tickets available here: http://basis.org.uk/events/the-basis-playing-better-challenge/
This conference will bring together people from professional, university and community sport including governing bodies, clubs and venues along with policy makers, academics and others.
Playing Better Challenge
The conference will see the launch of the inaugural Playing Better Challenge in association with Hubbub. The challenge will see clubs pitch to an audience of Sustainability Dragons from the world of sport. These Dragons will provide free mentorship to clubs in implementing sustainability practices which will cut costs allowing clubs funds to be spent where they matter most. Interested clubs in being selected to pitch their club and goals should email [email protected]
The common thread is the desire to incorporate sustainable development principles into our organisations, to reduce our environmental impacts, enhance the communities we live and work in and reduce costs of operations.
The event will be concluded by a number of breakout sessions lead by sports industry leaders, including:
University of Gloucestershire’s Students’ Union
The Golf Environment Organisation
Topics include sustainability in community, professional and university sports, energy use in sports venues, sport and climate change in the run up to COP21 and Sport Governing bodies and Sustainability.
