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.
