“All over the world and across all sports, sporting legends are finding their voice

and using their platforms, to raise the alarm, for climate emergency and ecological justice.”

If during this year’s Tokyo Olympics you saw athletes making a circular symbol with their hands, it meant more than just that they are feeling okay. Due to an initiative Oly Earth+ it also means that they are supporting climate action and projects to leave a positive ecological legacy.

The Olympics and Paralympics are huge forces for good: bringing nations and athletes together, enabling individuals to pursue and realise their dreams and allowing us all to push the boundaries of what we think is possible.

But, like much of modern-day life, there is also an environmental cost to athlete participation in the Games.

OLY Earth+ is setting out to change that, so that Team GB’s participation in the Tokyo Games is ambitious and inspiring on an environmental level, as well as an athletic one.
