    Climate Change and Sport with Mary Robinson

    31:17

    With 2020 set to be one of the hottest years on record, climate change is bringing harsher heatwaves, heavier rain and fire risks among other threats. Playing and watching sport in 2021 will be increasing challenging. Long-term climate change will potentially increase migration, driving increased human rights abuses, racism and discrimination. In sport, the effects will not be evenly spread. Damage to playing surfaces, buildings and infrastructure, heat exhaustion, impact injuries from harder surfaces, potentially harmful algal blooms for water sports will all disproportionately affect the poor and young. Featuring Mary Harvey, CEO of the Centre for Sport and Human Rights and Mary Robinson, Chair of the Centre for Sport and Human Rights.
