The Sports Environment Alliance (SEA) will co-host a public lecture with Climate Reality, entitled: ‘The Tale of Two MCCs: Melbourne and Marylebone’
We will uncover the journeys of the two MCCs; Melbourne Cricket Club and Marylebone Cricket Club in mitigating our changing climate.
We are pleased to present Dr Russell Seymour, Chairman of the British Association of Sustainability in Sports (BASIS) and head of sustainability at Lord’s Cricket Ground to the Melbourne community.
Russell’s commitment has led to the decision to be completely wind energy powered, making every cricket match carbon neutral.
We are equally delighted that Peter Wearne, General Manager, Melbourne Cricket Ground, will be introducing Dr Russell Seymour.
Aside from their connection through the Ashes, they share the same moral obligation to minimising their footprint and to ensure their institutions are resilient for the future. Through Peter’s leadership, the MCG has had recent attention in its environmental leadership in effectively managing water use and materials management, with diversion rates well above 80%.
Opening remarks will be given by Dr Sheila N Nguyen, Executive Director, Sports Environment Alliance.
