Brazil’s Green World Cup?


The study includes analysis of the socioeconomic impacts of the World Cup and how to make the World Cup “greener,” and it aims to identify ways in which Brazil can ensure that “the event lasts not only a few days, but many years, leaving a positive legacy for society as a whole.”

Although Beijing may have done a better job for the 2008 Olympics, Athens still suffers from sports facilities in ruins from hosting the 2004 edition. Although the football (soccer) World Cup is not as diverse and facilities-intensive as the Olympics, I'm glad Brazil is considering sustainability as its top priority.
