Education Special: Teaching Sustainability in Sport
April 20, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This April, honor the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with the Green Sports Alliance and the <a href='https://www.sportecology.org/' target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer'>Sport Ecology Group</a> during a webinar series throughout the month!
All <a href='https://www.youtube.com/user/greensportsalliance' target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer'>webinar recordings</a> will be publicly available online.
David Orr, founder of <a href='https://350.org/' target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer'>350.org</a> once argued that the environmental crisis is fundamentally a crisis of education. If more people understood the natural environment, its current and expected future challenges, and their relationship to the environment, perhaps minds and behaviors would change. Sport ecology has emerged as a promising inroad for sport management professors to frame ‘grand challenges’ discussions in undergraduate and graduate coursework. In this webinar, experienced professors will discuss their approaches to teaching sport ecology content in general sport management classes, and strategies for creating stand-alone sport ecology coursework.
