It's no secret - mass sporting events can be damaging, producing tons of waste within a single day. But the good news: many major events have already begun making significant changes to reduce their environmental footprint. Through this talk, Kate aims to share with athletes about the environmental crisis humanity is facing today, and the importance of "running green".
