About the course

This course is offered as part of a programme:

Sport Sciences: Sport in Society, Master's Programme (One-Year)

Course content

The course addresses sustainable development issues in connection to sport.

The concept sustainable development, which includes social, economic and environmental aspects, is problematised in a contemporary sport and health context. Here, social aspects include for instance equality, accessibility and life style issues. Economic aspects are viewed both from the individual and societal perspective and include welfare as well as growth issues. Environmental aspects include for example resource consumption, pollutions, land degradation, etc.

Of importance are both theoretical understanding and empirical application in co-operation with different actors.

Furthermore, the course addresses questions concerning how sustainability work is conducted and could be carried out in different sport related organisations, locally, nationally and internationally.

The students develop their ability to strategically reflect and suggest solutions, regarding sustainability issues in a contemporary sports and health context, based on an analysis of a selected sport or health related organization.

Finally, the student identifies the need for further knowledge within the field more broadly and from a personal perspective.
