Sustainability Through Sport: Implementing the Olympic Movement's Agenda 21, International Olympic Committee
by: International Olympic Committee to the United Nations

Sport presents broad opportunities to promote environmental awareness, capacity buidling and far-reaching actions for environmental, social and economic development across society. It can also be a means of achieving peace and reconciliation as a fundamental prerequisite for sustainability principles to be shared and applied and here the Olympic Movement plays a role. This publication identifies the milestones achieved since 1992 in using sport as a catalyst for promoting positive action and changing attitudes. It sets out the sum of developments made since the original Rio summit and makes a broad assessment of sustainable development as a whole. Besides looking back, it also casts a look forward to determine the steps that need to be made to involve future generations - today's youth - in the process of working towards greater sustainability.
