This April, celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day online with Green Sports Alliance and the Sport Ecology Group.
David Orr, renowned environmental educator, once argued that the environmental crisis is fundamentally a crisis of education. If more people understood the natural environment, its current and expected future challenges, and their relationship to the environment, perhaps minds and behaviors would change. Sport ecology has emerged as a promising inroad for sport management professors to frame ‘grand challenges’ discussions in undergraduate and graduate coursework. In this webinar, experienced professors will discuss their approaches to teaching sport ecology content in general sport management classes, and strategies for creating stand-alone sport ecology coursework.
