Do you want to #SEAtheChange?
The #SEASummit 2016 will equip you with the knowledge to:
- better understand what built environment changes can be made to minimise environmental impact (water, energy, material use) and engender commercial and social outcomes through shared insight
- strategise and design eco-action from procurement decisions to materials management through presented national and international case studies
and, at the #SEASummit 2016, you will have the opportunity to build your network to:
- connect with a diverse range of key stakeholders who can support your eco-journey
- foster a nexus of relationships that can engage both individuals and our organisation to lead to real environmental impact for your local and the global community
This year, we are celebrating at the #SEASummit 2016 the good work being done across our communities to minimise our impact. Sport is a vehicle for social and environmental good, and your efforts, big or small, to reduce energy, water and material use should be lauded.
The #SEAChangeSolutions Awards will occur during the #SEASummit 2016, giving delegates another opportunity to gain knowledge about the good work already happening and celebrate the achievements of community sporting clubs, venues/facilities and organising bodies who make efforts to minimise their environmental footprint.
