Playing the Climate Game

Event Calendar Listing

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

5:30 pm

How did your favourite local sport fare over our summer period in the face of extreme heat, smoke and other weather disruptions?

Did the organisers suspend play, cancel games or cause confusion over when to call it?

Join Wellington Shire Council and partner agencies to learn about the impacts of climate change on grassroots sports and what we can do to minimise them in the future.

Featuring guest speakers:
• Amy Steel - former Australian professional netballer.
• Dr Sheila Nguyen - Executive Director of the Sports Environment Alliance.
• Dara Twomey - Federation University Sport Injury Prevention and Climate Change researcher. Plus more!

Playing the Climate Game is one of four sessions delivered as part of the Gippsland Smart Futures Series. A full program is soon to be released. It's free to attend with registration and places are limited.

Attendees are invited to attend other free workshops and presentations earlier in the day. More information and registrations here.
