The IRB was delighted to assist AISTS in the development of this important sustainability tool prior to and following its official launch. Tournament managers and operational staff had the opportunity to try it out in advance of assessing existing or potential areas where sustainable initiatives were or could be implemented. The knowledge gained was an enormous help in viewing tournament actions through a sustainability lens - before, during and after the event. The e-learning together with accompanying SSE Toolkit will help IRB frame future guidelines on sustainability practices and methods applicable to our core functions.

Sports sustainability is a global concern that each and every local sport organization should promote and enforce. Doing this Sport Sustainability E Learning course has really empowered me on the concepts of sustainable development and how our sport activities can definitely contribute towards a better world to live in.

Sport persons, in Africa, undoubtedly require such type of training on sport sustainability as in our sport realm we are still far behind in considering these concepts when we indulge in our sport events. However the wheel is turning more and more swiftly leaving us no choice than to be well prepared and knowledgeable on sport sustainability. Hence we will be proactive to consider the social, economic and environmental issues on a holistic approach to make our sport events sustainable.
