Five of The World's Most Sustainable Sports Stadiums

Five of The World's Most Sustainable Sports Stadiums | Digital Sustainability | Scoop.it
Five of The World's Most Sustainable Sports StadiumsGreen Building ElementsSustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we've seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums.

Sustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we’ve seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums. Traditionally, the concept behind sports stadiums has been to create a colosseum-like structure which adds theatre and creates an incredible atmosphere with little prior thought ever given to sustainability. Recently, things have begun to change and we’re now seeing more and more architects giving sustainability the attention it deserves when designing new sports stadiums...

Jackson Hoffman's curator insight, September 7, 2014 6:48 PM

1. What did you learn? I learned about how different companies recently have worked together to build stadiums with sustainable designs.

2. What information did you find interesting and educational? I think it is interesting how these companies have been designing these structures, and what they have been using to build them with.

3. Why did you select the article? I selected this article to learn about how companies are conserving important materials such as water.

4. How will this information help you in the sport management industry?

This will help me in the industry since I will be able to use this information to make suggestions as to how to improve facilities in the sport field. 

Vinnie's curator insight, February 17, 2015 7:38 PM

Video Demonstrating The Arctic's Record Breaking Ice Melt

The sea ice in the Arctic Ocean dropped below the previous all-time record set in 2007. This year also marks the first time that there has been less than 4 million square kilometers (1.54 million square miles) of sea ice since satellite observations began in 1979. This animation shows the 2012 time-series of ice extent using sea ice concentration data from the DMSP SSMI/S satellite sensor. The black area represents the daily average (median) sea ice extent over the 1979-2000 time period. Layered over top of that are the daily satellite measurements from January 1 -- September 14, 2012. A rapid melt begins in July, whereby the 2012 ice extents fall far below the historical average. The National Snow and Ice Data Center (www.nsidc.org) will confirm the final minimum ice extent data and area once the melt stabilizes, usually in mid-September.

NOAA: Record High Ocean Temperatures in North Atlantic

NOAA: Record High Ocean Temperatures in North Atlantic | Digital Sustainability | Scoop.it

"A pronounced warming event occurred on the Northeast Shelf this spring, and this will have a profound impact throughout the ecosystem," said Kevin Friedland, a scientist in the NEFSC's Ecosystem Assessment Program, who said the warmer waters will have impacts on marine life, from plankton to whales. "Changes in ocean temperatures and the timing of the spring plankton bloom could affect the biological clocks of many marine species, which spawn at specific times of the year based on environmental cues like water temperature."

HAVE WE DECLARED WAR ON THE EARTH? VIDEO

 

Vandana Shiva emphasizes that industrial farming is at the core of environmental degradation. This long-outdated form of agriculture, to which we have ascribed for roughly 200 years, wreaks havoc on the environment. Shiva refers to the overuse of pesticides and herbicides, as well as genetic modification of crops, as forms of violence against the Earth. This in turn translates to violence against people, against all species, against democracy, and against science itself. Reconstituted soy flour will never replace lentils, no matter how cheap or easy to produce. Chemical pesticides derived from war technology will never make our crops more abundant nor our bodies more hearty.... http://intentblog.com/real-food-why-biodiversity-can-save-our-bodies-and-our-planet/
