About the project

With funding from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), and in collaboration with the German Sport University Cologne (DSHS Köln) and the Öko-Institut Darmstadt, the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) has developed this new Internetportal, Green Champions 2.0 for Sustainable Sports Events. The portal is based on a document entitled “Green Champions for Sports and the Environment. Guidelines for environmentally friendly large sports events”, which was also developed by the DOSB together with the German Sport University Cologne and the Institute for Applied Ecology and published in 2007 by the Federal Ministry of the Environment and the DOSB.

The portal’s target audience includes organizers and interested parties seeking information about concrete possible actions for planning and executing sustainable sports events. The website offers a topical overview of concrete actions – also regarding the various steps of an event. These measures are available as downloadable PDF checklists. Thanks to its filter function and various selection criteria, the website enables measures to be customized according to the nature of an event. Practical examples with different types of events provide helpful tips around actual experiences.
