Nelson Mandela said “Sport has the power to change the world.” The sports world has been greening itself aggressively for the past 15 years. LEED certified stadia, arenas and Zero-Waste games have become the norm. Eco-athletes are starting to speak out. But fans, for the most part, are unaware of this. Why is that the case? And going forward, will the sports world engage masses of sports fans about climate change and other environmental issues? Lew Blaustein received his MBA from NYU Stern and is the author of GreenSportsBlog, the source for news and commentary about the intersection of Green & Sports.  Blaustein will moderate a panel that will try to answer these questions.

From 1988–2016, he served as Senior Scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). He currently serves as Chairman of the Board and Founding Director of Sport and Sustainability International and is the Environmental Science Advisor to the New York Yankees.
