Through funding by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the creation of a first ever European Green Sports Hub is underway to support sustainability through European sports and sports events! It will act as an eco-platform for European sports, federations, events, leagues and teams. The main aim of the project is to help the sport sector identify its needs and potential actions for a greener and more sustainable future. This informative hub will therefore guide sports organisations like CEV and beyond to learn best practices for maintaining healthy, sustainable events that complement the environment.
The Green Sports Hub Europe will connect European sporting organisations from the local to European level to promote sustainable sport measures. It will directly address five groups of stakeholders:
- EU and official European bodies
- National governments and national governmental agencies
- Sport organisations at all levels
- The business sector
The Green Sports Hub Europe consortium is composed of representatives of public authorities investing in circular economy, sustainability expert organisations and NGO, national and European sport organisations and EU umbrella sport related organisations.
This combination of staff from the partnership and from External Advisers gives a broad competence profile with specific focus on different areas directly linked to the preparation and implementation of the project with focus on the highest quality standard.
