Green Sports Alliance 10-year Anniversary Summit to Be Rescheduled
March 25, 2020: Portland, OR – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Green Sports Alliance (Alliance) is postponing its 10-year anniversary Summit for a later date, to be determined.
“The health and well-being of our members, partners, staff, and all those within our community are of the utmost priority to us,” said Roger McClendon, Executive Director of the Green Sports Alliance. “As a result, we’ve made the decision to reschedule our Summit in an effort to keep our attendees, hosts, and regional partners safe. The shutdown of the sports industry has been difficult for everyone, and we hope that by moving our event, we can better support our industry and the greater sports greening movement. Our thoughts are with all of those impacted during these challenging times.”
2020 marks the Alliance’s 10-year anniversary and the Summit will reflect on the past and set new standards of excellence in the sports and sustainability movement for the decade to come. The theme of the Summit, Game On! The Future of Sports and Sustainability, will feature new ideas, solutions, and successes of the movement and will engage leaders from the national and global sustainability community. It will also highlight the role sports has in helping us come together again safely after a worldwide crisis.
The Summit host city of Minneapolis is committed to environmental health, social equity, and balancing present concerns and future generations’ needs. With a vibrant community of people and businesses, the Alliance is pleased to bring the 10-year Anniversary Summit to the region.
In addition to engaging programming, keynote speakers, and networking opportunities, the Summit will feature a trade show highlighting industry-relevant products, services, and innovations. NatureWorks, a long-time partner of the Alliance, will support the Summit as a title sponsor.
