In a growingly complex global context, sustainability is one of the most defining challenges of our time across all industries. Sport is no exception to this trend. Furthermore, it presents extensive opportunities to promote ESG issue across society.
The ability of a sport federation or organisation to balance the economic, environmental and social impact of their activities, including events they host, organise or govern is critical to the future development of their sport, meaning that the managerial complexity associated with integrating sustainability aspects in decision-making is crucial. Furthermore, the development, implementation and monitoring of sustainable management practices have the potential of striking the perfect balance between adding value and reducing risk.
The Managing Sport Sustainability short programme is designed to provide a comprehensive and critical review of organisations’ interpretation of social responsibility and sustainability issues and the need to manage social and environmental performances. Furthermore, participants will broaden their understanding of how to foster the implementation of a sustainability strategy within their organisation. The programme also provides valuable insights about sustainable business to policy makers seeking a comprehensive knowledge of how sport organisations may become more sustainable.
The experiential style of the programme ensures that participants benefit from the most impactful learning with a truly international and diverse group. The classroom experience is enriched further thanks to the active participation of the AISTS MAS participants in Sport Management and Technology.
