British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences forms a Climate Change Action Team

With global climate change at critical levels and set to worsen, the implications for people, societies, nature, and the planet are becoming increasingly apparent. In response, scientific and professional bodies across the world are doing what they can to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to mitigate the negative impact of increased temperature. As a health-focused discipline and one which has considerable ‘reach’, it is important that Sport and Exercise Science does ‘its bit’ to help address the climate change emergency.
