World Environment Day

June 5, 2020
Organiser:
Time For Nature

The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.

Yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message:
To care for ourselves we must care for nature. It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices. It’s time to build back better for People and Planet. This World Environment Day, it’s Time for Nature.

World bicycle day

June 3, 2020
Organiser:
United Nations

Regular physical activity of moderate intensity – such as walking, cycling, or doing sports – has significant benefits for health. At all ages, the benefits of being physically active outweigh potential harm, for example through accidents. Some physical activity is better than none. By becoming more active throughout the day in relatively simple ways, people can quite easily achieve the recommended activity levels.

The mobility needs of people who walk and cycle – often the majority of citizens in a city – continue to be overlooked, states Share the Road Programme Annual Report 2018, even though the benefits of investing in pedestrians and cyclists can save lives, help protect the environment and support poverty reduction. Meeting the needs of people who walk and cycle continues to be a critical part of the mobility solution for helping cities de-couple population growth from increased emissions, and to improve air quality and road safety.

Education Special: Teaching Sustainability in Sport

April 20, 2020
Organiser:
The Sport Ecology Group, Green Sport Alliance

David Orr, founder of 350.org once argued that the environmental crisis is fundamentally a crisis of education. If more people understood the natural environment, its current and expected future challenges, and their relationship to the environment, perhaps minds and behaviors would change. Sport ecology has emerged as a promising inroad for sport management professors to frame 'grand challenges' discussions in undergraduate and graduate coursework.
In this webinar, experienced professors will discuss their approaches to teaching sport ecology content in general sport management classes, and strategies for creating stand-alone sport ecology coursework. Speakers: Dr. Jonathan Casper (North Carolina State University), Dr. Brian McCullough (Seattle University / The Sport Ecology Group), Dr. Sylvia Trendafilova (University of Tennessee at Knoxville) Moderator: Dr. Walker Ross (Florida Southern College)
