Ecoflag Project Participation Guidelines.
  1. Flown at sporting events, the Ecoflag is an effective tool for promoting environmental awareness among athletes and spectators, and introducing environmental actions that can be extended into our everyday lives.
  2. Many events flying the Ecoflag reinforce the message with a slogan or catchphrase, which is displayed and repeated throughout the event. For example, on the FIVB-SWATCH Beach Volleyball World Tour, events are run under the slogan gKeep the beach clean-think environmenth.
  3. Environmental messages can be repeated at the event through the PA system, and environmental information included in official programs or leaflets.
  4. Include simple actions to reduce the environmental impact of the event. Depending on the size and type of event, actions could include reducing/separating garbage, encouraging the use of public transport or carpooling, reusing food and beverage containers, introducing energy/water saving measures, and promoting the greduction, reuse and recyclingh of sports equipment.
