Online Sustainability Resource A Winner For Local Sport

Source: Minister for Community Sport .

New online resources will raise the bar when it comes to reducing the impact of sport on the environment and increasing the sustainability of community sport for clubs, local councils and facility managers.

Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence today launched the Victorian Government backed Future Proofing Community Sport and Recreation Facilities online guide and toolkit at the opening of the 2020 Sports Environment Alliance Virtual Summit.

The resource was developed through a $100,000 Victorian Government strategic partnership between Sport and Recreation Victoria and the Sports Environment Alliance and brings together current research and proven techniques and approaches to future proofing facilities of all descriptions in the face of climate change.

From water saving ideas to protecting grass surfaces, the resource provides the latest best-practice and sustainable innovation to prepare facilities for extreme weather conditions including floods, droughts and heatwaves.

Reducing the impacts of climate change on community sport and becoming more sustainable will keep downward pressure on the cost of sport as organisations seek to reduce environmental impact and ensure sport remains accessible and affordable for all.
