SEA Summit 2017 @ MCG
Clear your calendar, switch on your ‘out of office’ email and tell all your friends, colleagues and sporting acquaintances you’re busy on Tuesday 14 Nov 2017 talking about ways to save the planet (and sport of course). After all, we are an obsessed sporting nation, right?
Back by popular demand, the SEA (Sports Environment Alliance) Summit 2017 is back for another year discussing the big issues on how we, as a sporting community can lower our impact on the environment.
The #SEASummit2017 will be held at the MCG, quite a fitting location for this event when you think about how a stadium like the MCG has evolved over time to meet sustainability requirements.
FUN FACT: Did you know the MCG is currently undergoing an energy efficiency upgrade that will convert the MCG into one of the most environmentally sustainable stadiums in the world saving enough electricity to power the light towers for nearly six years. That’s the equivalent amount of energy to power 835 houses a year.
With a panel of international and local line up of experts in the sustainability sector, the #SEASummit2017 will open your eyes to new ways of looking at how your sporting organisation can reduce its impact on the environment.
International speakers include Viviane Fraisse, Head of Sustainability at the French Federation of Tennis (FFT), Viviane is well known for her role on implementing a strategy of social responsibility at the FFT and manages the ISO certification (an international set of standards and best practices of managing social, economic and environmental impact processes at major events) at Roland Garros.
Hailing from the United Kingdom, Sustainability Manager at Land Rover BAR, Amy Munro specialises in promoting public awareness of environmental issues and ocean conservation. Amy has been lucky enough to be part of dive teams researching the health of coral reefs in Fiji and this year was Amy’s first America’s Cup campaign as the Sustainability Officer for Land Rover BAR.
Local speakers include Paul Cammack - Director of Participation at Tennis Australia, Simon Gorr - National Venues Manager at the Australian Football League (AFL) and Neil Dalrymple - CEO at Bowls Australia.
Hosted by sports journalist Tiffany Cherry, this one-day event will give you the inspiration to think outside the box and be inspired by the people who campaign for smarter ways to protect the planet whilst playing sport.
