Speakers and delegates who participated in Josoor Institute’s course titled ‘Sustainability for Sports & Major Events’, which was held on Tuesday and Wednesday 4-5 November, and concluded successfully. The course was attended by over 70 delegates from Qatar and the region, including FAs of Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Yemen and Tunis.
The introductory two-day course, which was hosting during the Doha GOALS Forum, examined sustainability for sports and major events from an environmental, social and economic perspective. It also examined the global implications facing sports and events practitioners in the region. As Qatar looks to host more international events building up to the FIFA World Cup™ in 2022 and continuing with its drive for sustainable stadia design, the course drew global and regional best practice to one platform.
Josoor Institute will be introducing a set of lengthier courses in early 2015, which will offer professional certificates and diplomas. These more in-depth educational programmes are designed to give a deeper understanding of the industry and develop the skills required to work in sports and events for those leaving higher education or those planning a career.
