Course description

Sustainability & Major Sport Events: Implementation

When planning to host a major sport event you must take certain steps to ensure that the event is not only sustainable for the host city or region, but also leaves a lasting legacy long after the event has concluded.

The first course in the Sustainability & Major Sport Events Professional Certificate program teaches the five pillars of sustainability and looks at how these pillars should be implemented during the planning and hosting phase. With these pillars as the core principles, this second course provides you with the practical steps to take and tools to use when managing an event, and more specifically when implementing a sustainable major sport event. You are also presented with best practices in terms of strategy, sustainable procurement, and action plans to further enhance your learning.
