About SEG

The Sport Ecology Group is a community of academics seeking to share our research with a broader audience than traditional academic journals will allow. We are guided by a simple vision: 

 

imagine if all people understood and supported the environment with the same interest and passion they showed their favorite sports teams.

Our Mission

To produce high-quality research in sport ecology, catalyze industry-academy knowledge exchange, raise public awareness of sport ecology-related topics, and create opportunities for students to learn and grow as professionals.

  • Expectations of members: A commitment to participation in semi-annual meetings and regular engagement with SEG initiatives and writing research summaries.

  • Eligibility: Any academic who conducts research on topics that could be considered to fall under the umbrella of sport ecology, which is the study of the bi-directional relationship between sport and the natural environment.

 

Applications are currently closed.
