Sustainability & Major Sport Events: Principles (edX)
Learn the five pillars of sustainability and how to apply these when planning and hosting a major sport event. While any major sport event can pose great opportunities for the host city or region, there are also challenges associated with hosting these events. The environmental impact on the country's natural resources, the workforce, and infrastructure are just some of the considerations. It is essential to ensure that your major sport event is sustainable for your city throughout the event, but also after the event has been completed.
