Why it Matters

The sports industry is uniquely positioned to make large scale impact in the environmental performance of many of our largest public spaces. Sports teams also play a special role in influencing citizens and mobilizing communities to take action. The Summit seeks to highlight better practices for enhancing performance and fostering a dialogue with stakeholders and fans about environmental stewardship.

2020 marks the Alliance’s tenth anniversary. The June Summit, “Game On! The Future of Sports & Sustainability” will be a celebration of the past decade and a view towards the next ten years, while we set a new standard of excellence in the sports and sustainability movement. We invite you to join us as we set the stage for the next decade of sports and sustainability. Your voice, your vision, your goals, and your ideas are essential as we collectively seek to lead the way and drive a more sustainable world and build stronger communities.

“Game On!” will bring together leaders in sports and sustainability, along with sustainability leaders from other industries and sectors to facilitate the exchange of ideas and best-in-class solutions and innovations.

Hosting our Summit in Minneapolis is incredibly important because of the sports entities, companies, and communities that are invested in the future of sustainability. This will be reflected in all aspects of our event, as we connect the greater sports industry to the Minneapolis region and showcase the inspiring work the region is doing.
