Online Lecture Series “Sustainability in Sport” – Open for Guests

The online lecture series is part of the module “Sustainability in Sports – a Think Tank and Experimental Lab” within the Optionalbereich.

Nowadays, “sustainability” is on everyone’s lips. In 2015, all United Nations Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, providing a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. How should the role of sport be seen in this context? Sport must rethink its own self-image in all its fields. Sport should be: resource-light, low-emission, nature-friendly, humane, and sustainable.

Sport has many facets and aspects concerning the overriding topic of sustainability. Within the lecture series we will address some of them.
