Olympism is praxis : the environmental protection - action sports, sustainability, and the Olympic Movement / Eva Elmer

Ellmer, Eva

Of all sportspeople, action sports participants are at the forefront of environmental protection due to their cultural core values and interconnectedness with the natural environment. This research follows in the footsteps of scholars promoting the argument that action sports participants utilise nature as a learning environment and this subsequently impacts on their willingness to contribute to environmental suitability. However, there is no previous research on action sports participants and Olympism in relation to environmental sustainability. Therefore, this article seeks to bridge the gap between environmental protection and the Olympic ethos through the means of action sport participation.
