Drawing on a diverse blend of academic specialisms in multiple schools, we deliver an integrated approach to tackling a number of critical issues.
Some of our research highlights
Impacts of sport emissions on climate
SCAN researchers led a global review over a 30-year period of the impacts of sport emissions on climate - it is published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences.
Much remains to be done across grassroots and elite sports, as well as by national governing bodies.
Instead of Faster, Higher, Stronger - now is the time for Slower, Closer, Lighter footprints.
Impacts of climate change on organised sport
SCAN researchers Dr Madeleine Orr and Dr Russell Seymour were part of an international team of researchers which conducted a scoping review of existing literature (1995-2021) about the impacts of climate change on organised competitive sport entities, with further attention paid to their adaptation efforts.
Sport for Nature Symposium
Following the UN Environment Programme study - Sports for Nature: Setting a Baseline - preparations are underway to establish an annual Sport for Nature Symposium.
As a SCAN research student, you will be encouraged - with the support of the supervisory team - to facilitate and support this flagship event.
