Book Description

Sport has the potential to be a powerful platform for positive change. This is the first textbook to introduce the fundamentals of sport and sustainable development, examining how sport can be made more sustainable in terms of its social and environmental impact, and how sport can achieve more comprehensive social and ecological objectives. 

Introducing key theory, and looking at how sustainability has been embedded in real-world organizations, projects, and developments, the book draws on a range of multidisciplinary perspectives including sport business and management, development studies, environmental studies, sociology, psychology, and political science. Every chapter includes international viewpoints from the voices of professionals who have been successful in achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs) in and through their work. As pressure grows on sport, business, and wider society to put sustainability and social and environmental responsibility at the center of their operations, the themes and topics examined in this book become ever more important. 

This is essential reading for any course on sport and sustainable development, and important background reading for any course in sport management, sport development, event studies, environment and society, business and the environment, or social responsibility.
