About Green Footprint Lightening on sports Activities, Management, and Events (Green FLAME)
Green FLAME is an Erasmus+ project under the coordination of the Spanish Olympic Committee, which aims to promote a more sustainable sports environment in general and promote neutral sports events by encouraging not only sport managers but also fans.
This goal will be achieved thanks to the experience and leadership of the Spanish Olympic Committee in the field of sports sustainability, but especially by the transnational cooperation of the consortium, that includes Olympic committees, research, and innovation institution, a sports association, and one SME specialised on the development of gamified apps. Technology will be a core tool for promoting sustainability in sport.
The sub aims of the Green FLAME project are the following:
- Develop an app, Green FLAME, that will help managers and policymakers to evaluate sustainability indicators on their activities and events, calculate the carbon footprint that they are producing, and receive evidence-based strategies to reduce it towards a more sustainable activity. Fans will take advantage of the app, raising awareness on how they can contribute towards more sustainable behaviour as sports followers and citizens
- Develop an Online Educational programme and a MOOC, targeting sport managers and policy-makers, in which key sustainability strategies will be taught by experts in the field
- The Green FLAME app use will be promoted, and the participants will receive a completion certification by the project partners.
