Mistra Sport & Outdoors

Research project

Short description

The Sport and Outdoor Mistra Program (SPOOR) takes environmental impacts as a point of departure to study sustainable practices in sport and outdoor recreation. The aim is to produce and apply new knowledge on sustainable solutions, which reduce negative impacts from transport, land and water use, equipment and events. The goals are to (i) put Sweden at the international forefront of sustainable practices obtained through co-creation between research and stakeholders, (ii) start a movement for more sustainable practices, and (iii) establish a network-based center for research, development and policy support in favor of sustainable solutions. Several universities and relevant organisations and authorities working with sport and outdoor recreation are involved in the work, which spans the next four years.
