AISTS Collected Insights from the Field of Sports – Sustainability & Legacy

Olympic World Library

Sustainability and legacy are presently two of the major challenges for the sports event industry. In the past two decades, governing bodies, event organisers, cities, companies and professional sports leagues have all been reflecting on how best to embed these challenges into the organisation of sports events. This book from the AISTS (International Academy of Sports Science and Technology) is the second in the series ‘Collected Insights from the Field of Sports’. It concentrates on the two aforementioned challenges of sustainability and legacy in sport. The chapters in this book are derived from research papers that have been produced by the participants and visiting professors of the AISTS postgraduate programme, the AISTS MSA (Master of Advanced Studies in Sports Administration and Technology). Being grounded in research, the book aims to correct the imbalance between the sustainability and legacy theories and practices in the world of sport. Our intention is that its outcomes can be utilised by academics, sports administrators, sports teams, students and the public to engage in the discussion on sports sustainability and legacy.

Playing against the Clock: Global Sport, the Climate Emergency and the Case for Rapid Change

David Goldblatt

Climate change is touching every aspect of human life and global sport is no exception: in 2019, the Rugby World Cup was disrupted by unprecedented pacific typhoons; in early 2020, the Australian Tennis Open was disrupted by the smoke blowing in from the country's devastating bush fire. The Tokyo 2020 Olympics were forced to move long distance running events north of the capital as the city's sweltering summer weather nos makes them impossible tu run.

The following report is divided in three sections :

  • Section 1 includes a review of the many ways in which climate change is already taking its toll on global sport
  • Section 2 is dedicated to the measurement of global sport's carbon emission
  • Section 3 shows the state of sport's environmental commitment
