Sustainable Golf Week returns this year as another point in time to reinforce the connection between golf and sustainability – to Reflect, Celebrate and Drive Further.
This year the focus is firmly on the natural world, entirely dedicated to championing how the game is #BetterWithNature.
Throughout the week, the Foundation, and many people and organisations across golf and beyond will take time to:
Jonathan Smith, Executive Director of GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf, the international non-profit which coordinates Sustainable Golf Week said: “Again, Sustainable Golf Week is an opportunity for golf to reflect on some of the most pressing environmental and social issues of current and future generations. To celebrate commitments, actions and contributions to date and also to help strengthen and accelerate those for the critical years ahead.
The world has limited time to overcome the twin challenges of nature loss and climate change. We need leaders, and golf has both the natural fit and natural advantage to deliver amongst all sports.Jonathan Smith
“We are excited to help celebrate many existing contributions from across the sport, while also being conscious of exploring what more the game can and needs to do.”
Suzann Pettersen, European Solheim Cup Captain and Sustainable Golf Champion, said: “Golf is played all around the world in different climates, landscapes and ecosystems, each course unique in its own way. And it is nature that makes this experience all the better. But nature is under threat and it is important we lead by example and inspire positive change to protect the land and species around us.”
We need a healthy, natural environment so let this Sustainable Golf Week further inspire golf’s team effort to help drive the critical nature comeback we all depend upon.Suzann Pettersen
People and organisations across the sport of golf are invited to get involved next week. Sharing their stories and perspectives.
