Global Sports Alliance

UNEP and Underprivileged Children and Youth Kick Off New Reconciliation Initiative

The Global Sports Alliance (GSA) is one of UNEP’s main partner on sport and the environment.

UNEP has worked GSA since it was established in 1999 to organize the Global Forum for Sport and Environment, to support the Nature and Sport Camp in Nairobi, Kenya and to promote the Ecoflag Movement – a global drive that seeks to increase environmental awareness and action in the world of sport.

UNEP and GSA also organized the Sport Summit for the Environment in Aichi, Japan during EXPO 2005. UNEP currently has a Memorandum of Understanding with GSA on the above mentioned activities.

GSA is a Japan-based non-for-profit organization that works on promoting the linkages between sport and the environment. GSA runs the largest online database on best practices on sport and the environment – a platform for sports federations, sporting goods manufactures, event producers and sports enthusiasts to determine their roles in increasing environmental action and awareness in sports. The database highlights a broad spectrum of environmental action in sports to educate and promote the public on the linkages between sport and the environment. It has several branches in countries around the world. The work of GSA is mainly carried out by volunteers from all sport disciplines who are committed to the environment.
