Title A diagnosis of environmental awareness in sport and sport policy
Author(s) Book, Karin ; Carlsson, Bo
Date 2011
English abstract
This article sheds light on the problematic, but urgent, relation between sport and its environmental effects by focusing on the development of internal policies in the Swedish sport movement as well as on external normative pressures for a sustainable environmental development. The materials in this study portray a passive (and blind) governance in relation to an official environmental policy at macro and meso levels, regardless of the manifestations of individual environmental projects in everyday sport practices. The analysis shows that the ideology of the autonomy of sport and the emphasis on self- regulation, regularly upheld by the Swedish Sports Confederation, is obsolete.
