Be sure to have read the resources in “lessons” before starting this forum and then read http://www.thesmartjournal.com/greenissues.pdf and review the journal article, “Green Sports Facilities Are Becoming The Gold Standard, by Robert A. Darwell and Huv Q. Nguyen, in the Sports Litigation Alert Archives (July 2, 2010) in your APUS Online Library.
“Sustainability is a comprehensive philosophy in which a variety of environmentally friendly materials and procedures are utilized to help reduce energy expenditures.” Over the last decade many individuals and organizations, including the sports industry, have adopted this philosophy. Many of the new and renovated stadiums are considered “green facilities”. Please review the journal below, the resources in “lessons” and the Internet to complete this assignment: You are the facility manager of a sports facility of your choice. Upper management has asked for you to come up with future plans to renovate or rebuild your facility making it a green facility. Come up with 8-10 ways to make your facility green and your reasoning behind each one. Use your imagination, money is no object! Create your presentation using PowerPoint and be sure to include graphics to support and enhance your presentation.
Your Powerpoint Presentation must have at least 10 slides. Your title slide and your reference slide do not count towards the 10-slide minimum.
