Active Environmental Sustainability in Colleges

About the Project

AoC Sport, Pearson BTEC Sport and Physical Activity and Planet Earth Games have set up a partnership and are co-producing a project aimed at educating, promoting and advocating colleges in climate action, and sustainable consumption.

The project will be shaped on the five guiding principles of the United Nations Sports for Climate Action Framework in everything that we do:

  • Undertake systemic efforts to promote greater environmental responsibility
  • Reduce overall climate impact
  • Educate for climate action
  • Promote sustainable and responsible consumption
  • Advocate for climate action through communication

We want to develop an offer that meets the needs of our students and members within the means of the planet.

Over the course of the 2023/2024 academic year we will;

  • Collate and share case studies of best practice within the sector
  • Invite colleges to pledge to take short, medium and or long term actions to tackle the climate crisis.
  • Share knowledge to colleges about key topics in this space.
  • Promote a new Planet Earth Games – Colleges competition which uses gamification and empowers colleges and students to lead on climate action
  • Recruit student Green Sports Ambassadors at colleges to lead their college in creating positive change.
  • Creating a new Sustainability in Sport Award as part of our annual AoC Sport Awards
