Raising awareness about the environmental impact of sport: BAGS project

Be Active for Greener Sports (BAGS) is an Erasmus+ Sport funded transnational partnership between Opes Italia (Project Leaders), ENGSO, Logos Sedavi (Spain), RHA (Romania) that aims to equip grassroots sport organisations with knowledge, frameworks, and skills to develop environmentally sustainable solutions and actions in running their day-to-day activities, training and competitions.

Building upon the knowledge gained through PlayGreen, a former Erasmus+ Sport project that ENGSO was a partner, stakeholders of these organizations developed capacities to consider, reflect on and measure their sport’s environmental impact, through the Green Tool. Currently, all partners with support from ENGSO as an expert partner, are all working in their local contexts to implement sustainable activities, raise awareness about the environmental impact of their sport among their membership and provide solutions to mitigate the climate impacts on sport and through sports.


Currently, one of the partners, Logos Basketball, located in Sedavi in Spain has already started working on an awareness campaign that aims (a) to disseminate information about sustainability in and through sport (b) to encourage proactive attitudes towards recycling, (c) to educate about the impact that our daily habits have on the environment (d) to raise awareness about adopting sustainable habits, generally, and in sports. These activities are taking place since May and are scheduled to last until the end of June.


A lot of children and young people in Sedavi who are members of Logos have taken part in these activities and are enjoying the opportunities Basketball brings to them in both practising the sport, adopting a healthy lifestyle, and also contributing to the local community through setting an example and adopting behaviours that have a positive impact on the environment.
