Meath Local Sports Partnership are delighted to be part of this exciting new initiative promoting sustainability in sport. Sports clubs have a high level influence on their local community and do serve as role models within their communities. Ensuring that your club is more sustainable can have the potential to inspire your club members and the local community to become more conscious of their impact not only within their club but on the local environment.
Given that sustainability is one of the key issues facing us on a global scale, affecting a wide range of social, environmental, and economic issues; these are also significant issues for the sports community, both in terms of day-to-day operations and duties to our young people and future generations. Sport has an unrivalled ability to encourage and inspire enormous numbers of people whether that is on a local, national or international level.
Our “Sustainability in Sport” information morning on the 28th January will showcase to local clubs how they can make their club more sustainable and in doing so, meeting some of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Speakers in attendance will present local case studies as well as presenting what is happening on a national/international stage. Why not come along on the morning, hear how other clubs are managing their approach to sustainability and the benefits they have accrued from that approach?
