Football, Climate-change and Sustainability AFC Wimbledon discussion

Your chance to join the debate on football, climate-change and sustainability. Point 10 from the Yellow and Blue Plan / Manifesto.

19 August at 6.30pm the inaugural Yellow and Blue Discussion Series asks a series of fundamental questions:

  • Can football afford to be ethical?
  • Is there an economic model that can make the ethical profitable?
  • In a world full of financial uncertainty, can AFC Wimbledon truly afford to be environment-friendly and sustainable?
  • Should caring about the future of our planet be part of football and AFC Wimbledon’s USP?

These questions and more will be put under the spotlight in the second of the Yellow and Blue Discussion Series by a high-profile panel of experts. The panel will also take questions from the audience.

On the panel are:

Lucy Siegle, renowned journalist and broadcaster, reporter for the One Show, and founder of the Observer Ethical awards

Dr. Russell Seymour, Chief Executive of the British Association for Sustainable Sport, and Sustainability Manager at Lords Cricket Ground

Paul Jeater, Chair of the Eastern Region of the Green Party and author of the Unique Solution: The first year of AFC Wimbledon
