The Sport Ecology Group works closely with university students at the undergraduate and graduate levels to develop the next generation of leaders in the sport and sustainability space.
This page includes resources for students to start their sport ecology studies, and opportunities to get involved in SEG initiatives (e.g. Green Team opportunities at large sport events, led by our faculty members; the Grad student Mentorship Initiative).
Soon, we hope to also have a listing of environmental or sustainability internship opportunities with sport organizations.
99 Ways to be More Sustainable
as a Student
The SEG team recognizes that sometimes, it's hard to know where to begin with environmentally sustainable behavior. Will it make a difference? Is it even worth my time? The answer to both questions is yes.
We've compiled a list of 99 ways a student can be more environmentally sustainable. This is a great resource to begin your sustainability journey!
PS - if you have ideas for other actions we should include, let us know!
Each academic year, our team invites applications for that year's cohort of Graduate Student Mentorship Initiative. The program offers participants access to the SEG's database of sport ecology research, personalized reading lists based on student's interest, monthly group calls to discuss research and network, and more.
