Research meets Practice: sustainability of large-scale sports events

19.11.2013 | Bonn

GIZ event series ‘Research meets Practice: international cooperation for sustainable development’

What does sustainability mean in this context with regards to social, economic, political and ecological aspects and which factors influence the sustainability of large-scale sports events? How can international cooperation contribute in order to best capitalize on the long-term development opportunities related to such events, e.g. new infrastructure? Discuss with our experts which challenges and success factors have been identified by sports research and how sports is interrelated to sustainable development in other areas such as education, health and environmental issues.

Dialogue partners: Prof. Holger Preuß (University of Mainz) and Gerald Guskowski (GIZ)

The event will be held in German only.
