The #SEAChangeSolutions Award

The #SEAChangeSolutions Award is back again in 2017!

Last year, the Melbourne Cricket Club was recognised for their commitment to operating the MCG in an environmentally responsible manner This year, we are again celebrating 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 Award will occur during the #SEASummit 2017, giving delegates another opportunity to gain knowledge about the good work already happening and celebrate the achievements of sporting clubs, venues/facilities and organising bodies who make efforts to minimise their environmental footprint.

To find out more or apply contact: events@sportsenvironmentalliance.org

After the formal proceedings delegates are invited to stay for networking drinks, presented by NatureWorks.

What our past attendees say:

"Thanks so much to you both and the rest of the SEA team for putting everything together yesterday, what a great event! Awesome turnout and an amazing success for SEA’s first Summit. Very educational learning about some of the brilliant initiatives being implemented (especially VRC diverting 95% of waste from landfill… how good!)"

"Just wanted to send my thanks for the opportunity to come to the #SEASummit yesterday. We both came away with a change perception and newly found passion for change. Look forward to crossing paths with you again and I will keep you looped in on any exciting initiatives we undergo."
