SFEI is collaborating with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to create a guide to incorporating nature into the sports world, from the development of Olympic cities to the design and management of the many sport fields and pitches throughout the urban landscape. To do so we apply the Urban Biodiversity Framework developed in Making Nature’s City to the world of sports, with case studies drawn from athletic federations, sports teams, and Olympic cities around the world. The guide is part of IUCN’s ongoing collaboration with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to develop best practices around biodiversity for the sporting industry.
