The most pressing existential threat to Earth today is climate change. The most popular game in the world is soccer. Without looking too hard, one can easily realize that soccer - for work or pleasure - can exacerbate the problems of climate change: travel, equipment, pristine grass fields, and even the construction of air-conditioned arenas in Qatar for the World Cup. All use massive amounts of resources that greatly add to carbon emissions.
But look a little more closely, and one can also see how soccer - and sports in general - can be a powerful source for change. This is not an either/or statement. Rather, it is increasingly clear that we can have vibrant, robust sports in society and still manage to work towards a more sustainable future.
