Explore Further – Richmond’s Partnership with AISTS

The Richmond Sustainable Event 7 Step Quick Guide and Toolkit are initiatives of the City of Richmond and the Richmond Olympic Oval in partnership with the International Academy of Sport Science Technology/Academie Internationale des Sciences et Techniques du Sport (AISTS) in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The information presented in the 7 Step Quick Guide and Toolkit originates from a larger and more comprehensive AISTS Sustainable Sport and Event Toolkit (SSET). The AISTS SSET is designed to help event organizers plan sustainable internationalk events. The AISTS SSET was originally developed for organizers of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

AISTS offer their own Sustainable Sport and Events Quick Start Guide which can be downloaded from their website. The information in the AISTS Sustainable Sport and Events Quick Start Guide can be used to supplement the information  provided by the City of Richmond and also to further your understanding of event-specific sustainable practices.
