Internet platform for sustainable sporting events: DOSB's Green Champions 2.0 now also available in English

Created on Friday, 04 Mar 2016 11:55:23

With the beginning of the second Youth Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer the tradition of the first green Winter Games in Lillehammer from 1994 continues. The organizers again seek to develop environmentally friendly solutions for Olympic Games and to inspire other organizers with sustainable initiatives.

The German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), partner of the EOC EU Office, follows this good example and announces the activation of the English version of the DOSB internet platform Green Champions. The service platform went online in 2015 and informs about eco-friendly and sustainable solutions for sporting events by providing concrete action plans, check lists and practical examples. It was developed by the DOSB in cooperation with the German Sport University Cologne and the Institute for Applied Ecology, with support from the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.

The English version of the original guideline “Green Champions in Sport and Environment Guide to environmentally-sound large sporting events”, winner of the sport and environment award by the IOC in 2009, attracted worldwide attention and was presented at international conventions. “The English version of the internet portal Green Champions 2.0 for Sustainable Sports Events supports our international work and global efforts in developing sustainable sporting events”, according to Karin Fehres, DOSB Board Member Sports Development.
The key subjects traffic, energy and resource consumption, waste management, catering and merchandising, nature and agriculture as well as sustainability management have all been comprehensively compiled online. A filter function allows users to specifically search for appropriate measures for their individual events – now also in English.
