Greening Activity Webinar
It seems we are reminded on a daily basis of the importance and the damaging effects of climate change on our planet.
Melting glaciers are contributing to rising sea levels across the globe. 10 of the warmest years in the UK's temperature record have taken place since 2002. Rainfall over Scotland is up 10% from the start of the 20th Century. The record-breaking European super heatwave of 2003 resulted in at least 70,000 deaths across the continent and similar heatwaves are now predicted to be the norm in the UK by 2040.
The future impacts of climate change depend on how much we can flatten the global temperatures whilst acknowledging the magnitude of the challenge and working collaboratively to find the solutions.
The sports sector like many others across the globe must take responsibility for its carbon footprint, in turn, helping reduce the threat of climate change.
The United Nations have introduced - Sports for Climate Action. An exciting and progressive initiative that calls on sporting organisations to acknowledge the contribution of the sports sector to climate change and their responsibility to strive towards climate neutrality for a safer planet.
This pivotal webinar will explore what the sport and leisure sector must do to help mitigate climate change. We know the amazing benefits of leading an active life but can we help heal the environment too?
This webinar will help you further understand;
Sport and leisure climate action agendas. Mitigation and obligation
Sustainable and responsible consumption
The quick wins to a brighter future
The benefits of solid, lasting business relationships
