Who says sustainability and Sports are not compatible?  A nationally recognized partner, the Green Sports Alliance put it this way: 
"The Alliance inspires professional sports leagues, college conferences, sports governing bodies, colleges, teams, venues, their partners and millions of fans to embrace renewable energy, healthy food, recycling, water efficiency, safer chemicals and other environmentally preferable practices."

Green Athletics Conference at the U

Join us on Nov. 10 - 12 pm to 2 pm in the Schwartz Center auditorium - Lunch will be served  - Free Admission

This conference will give South Florida sport professionals, collegiate sport administrators, students and athletes an opportunity to network and learn.
We want to learn from the professional world and from other universities'experience on how to make collegiate sports socially, economically, and environmentally responsible. 

From energy/water conservation, fans engagement, waste diversion or eco-friendly apparels, sustainability is a win-win for collegiate sports stakeholders.
