The ACCESS project announces its comprehensive training series for the coming autumn and winter!

In terms of the project workplan and its current phase, the time has come for extensive training and capacity building and knowledge transfer among the participating sport organisations in order for them to achieve their objectives in terms of improving their environmental performance. The best thing about this series – it is open for all the interested parties to attend!

This training series comes after a phase which saw extensive and comprehensive screening of the participating sport organisations through interviews, study visits and KPI analysis. The project’s technical partners, ACR+ and Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies who conducted these activities in Ireland, Denmark, Portugal and Wales have now put together a training series which answers the hotspots and needs of the participating sport organisations to improve their environmental performances. Five training modules were identified, each covering a set of operations and activities which were identified as potential fields for improved environmental management.

The trainings will take place once a month, each 15th of a month – 15 November, 15 December, 15 January, 15 February and 15 March – each of them starting at 11h (Central European Time). Guest speakers will include experts from both the world of sports, environmental management and circular economy, with appearances of experts in specific fields such as communications, mobility, procurement, nature conservation and more. The training sessions are imagined to be a perfect balance of speakers with different backgrounds – academics and practitioners, in order to cater for and meet the expectations of the project’s diverse audience. A number of speakers representing various sport organisations will share their examples of good practices, too.

The full agenda with speakers’ names will be published for each module around the 1st of each month and shared with the reminder.

The registered participants will receive a reminder around the 1st of each month. Therefore, interested parties are encouraged to register for all the modules, simply not to miss the reminders. In any case, each module will be recorded and available for replay.
