David Orr, founder of 350.org once said that climate change is a crisis of education. We agree. The more people know, the more agency they have to effect change.
As educators, we believe in the potential of young people to make waves in the sport space, and in the sustainability space. So, we've put together some resources for teachers and university professors to discuss sport ecology topics in their classes.
Sport Ecology Reading List
The SEG annual reading lists are a collection of academic articles that are shared with the public each summer. Each article on this list has been chosen by the SEG membership for its scope, rigour, approach, or unique insights. Upon request, PDFs of articles in this list can be shared with partners and clients of the SEG.
Our team is launching the Graduate Student Mentorship Initiative for the 2019-2020 academic year. 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.
Teaching Sport & Climate
Lecture slides and a teaching guide
In celebration of Climate Week 2019, the SEG membership has compiled a set of lecture slides to help sport professors bring climate change conversations into the classroom.
We've also developed an accompanying teaching guide, that goes with the slides. The teaching guide includes talking points, discussion questions, and clickable additional resources for each of the '10 things you should know about sport & climate', as well as an action list: '99 ways students can be more environmentally sustainable'.
