How can we make football events more environmentally friendly? The LIFE TACKLE - Teaming up for a Conscious Kick for the Legacy of Environment program which the Romanian Football Federation was involved with european partners ended with the debate Football: A strategic step for a sustainable environment, held on Tuesday, February 8th.

"Sport is a field deeply affected by climate change and it is good that you are aware that we have an environmental problem. 30 years is a long time for the planet, many negative things can happen from an environmental perspective and we must act. ”, said Conf. Univ. Dr. Florian Nuță.

The discussion had as guests Nicolae Ștefănuță, member of the Environment Committee of the European Parliament, Thomas Moldovan, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Sports, Lucian Mircescu, former head of the delegation on sports, during the Romanian Presidency of the EU, and Florian Nuță, vice-rector at Danubius University in Galați and was moderated by Florin Șari, manager of social responsibility and good governance of FRF.

In addition to a presentation of the results obtained by FRF in the TACKLE Program, the discussions focused on the measures that can be taken in organizing football events to minimize the negative impact on the environment, but also the infrastructure changes needed in Romania when we are talking about sustainable football.

"Sustainability should be at every stage of human action. If we think about planning a sporting event, we have to think systemically: when does the spectator leave home, what route does he take, what impact does the route have from the point of view of sustainability, what does he consume at the event, etc. We have to care and find the necessary measures, economic activity is also with a big impact on the environment, we have to balance between producing responsibly and allocating money for the environment, everyone should understand the environment, he has no lobbyist ″, explains Conf. Univ. Dr. Florian Nuță.

The TACKLE project took place between 2018 and 2022 and collected examples of good practice in the field of environmental management, tested solutions for various stadiums in Europe, facilitated the exchange of experience between football federations and other relevant actors in order to improve the sustainability of the environment football events.
