Global Forum for Sport and Environment Focuses on Climate Change

Global Forum for Sport and Environment (G-ForSE) October 2008: The UN Environment Programme (UNEP), with the

Global Sports Alliance of Japan and Volvo, hosted the 2008 Global Forum for

Sport and Environment in Alicante, Spain, from 4-6 October 2008.

The theme for

this year's forum was “Climate Change: Changing our Carbon Footprint.”

Participants focused on the connection between sport and climate change, and

considered how sport organizations and sporting events could reduce their

carbon footprints, as well as how sport could be used to raise awareness of

climate change. [UNEP
