Corporate Initiatives for Sustainable Sport and Events
Here is the brochure of the seminar.
The AISTS Sustainable Sport & Events (SSE) Centre is a worldwide recognised centre of expertise for sustainability in sport and events. It engages and empowers the sport sector and companies who support sport and events with the knowledge and tools to incorporate sustainability in their initiatives. The AISTS offers a two-day open learning module, the AISTS SSE open module, in Lausanne each year, and will, for the first time, organise it in Tokyo in 2016. Prior to this module in Tokyo, Geert Hendriks, AISTS Head of Projects, will talk about the AISTS, Olympic Agenda 2020, and sustainable sport and events. The seminar will also discuss the added value for companies to participate in the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) supported program ‘Global Active Cities’.
The aim of the seminar is, through the support of case-studies, to share the understanding of what a company can do and what value sustainable sport and events bring to a company. Comments and discussion with participants during this introduction seminar will be integrated into the AISTS SSE open module in 2016, which will focus on the implementation or quite simply the “How to”.
Participants of the seminar will be granted partial access to the Sport Sustainability E-Learning and the AISTS SSE Toolkit for free as a special offer.Please join us to share the latest thinking and discuss best practices to better understand sustainability in sport and events.
