environment & climate change
Going forward for the planet
Environmental changes in cities are a reality. Estimates suggest that cities are responsible for 75 percent of global CO2 emissions, with transport and buildings being among the largest contributors. But if cities are sources of pollution, they also have solutions to offer and are key actors for mitigating the effects of climate change by integrating this cross-cutting issue into policies. Building green facilities, providing environmentally friendly sport events, raising awareness on climate change through sport and promoting sport and physical activities can help cities achieve environmental goals.
