Team GB Competitors, Community, Climate
In an exciting development in this unique partnership, we are working with Team GB on three PhD projects. The three studies are about sustaining the future of individuals, society as a collective, and the environment These exciting and innovative PhD projects all uphold the values of Olympism, are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and will be integral to Team GB’s work on and commitment to three important themes of social impact, sustainability, and life beyond sport.
Applications are now being welcomed for the third of these PhD projects: Race to Zero: an Olympic Journey.
Elite sport has many benefits for global society, including its ability to promote an environmental message to those who are hard to reach by other routes. However, it has its own significant environmental footprint which should be recognised and minimised.
One of Team GB’s strategic goals is to understand and reduce its carbon footprint, and this PhD project will work in partnership with Team GB and two of the University’s research institutes – the Energy and Environment Institute and the Logistics Institute – to further this goal.
