Seminar: Big impact with limited resources - sustainability in grassroots sports clubs

UEFA EURO 2024 aims to be the most sustainable championships of all time. But let’s put the pro leagues aside, and bring the grassroots sport movement and its race towards sustainability to the table.

Our online seminar, organised by ENGSO Youth’s Sustainable Development Working Group, will discuss how despite the limited resources grassroots clubs usually operate with, they can still make a difference when it comes to sustainability. We will host representatives from three European grassroots sport clubs from three different countries who will explain how small actions can lead to big sustainable changes that benefit the people and the planet.
