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.

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)

First webinar of the SDG Sport Lab, hosted by Sport and Sustainability International (SandSI). It assess why the SDGs are a critical for success, how many worldwide federations are applying the SDGs today, and how the IOC supports the role of sport to advance on the SDGs.
Due to its vast reach, unparalleled popularity and foundation of positive values, sport is ideally positioned to contribute towards the United Nations’ objectives for development and peace.
To raise awareness of this potential, 6 April was declared as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) on 23 August 2013, by the UN General Assembly. The adoption of this Day signifies the increasing recognition by the UN of the positive influence that sport can have on the advancement of human rights, and social and economic development.
As governments voted on the establishment of the day, it receives wide recognition and ownership on an international scale. This proclamation is the result of collaboration between a number of different stakeholders, including the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP), governments, non-governmental and multilateral organisations and the private sector.
