Since the Supreme Council of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) sixth summit in Muscat, Oman in 1985 adopted policies and general principles for the protection of the environment, Bahrain continued its efforts, on a regional and a global scale, in hosting conferences that provide standards and mechanisms that are in line with the approach of protecting the environment as a major element of ensuring sustainability in the Gulf Cooperation Council.
The conference is supported by the Human and Environmental Affairs Sector at the Secretariat of the GCC, and is organized by the Bahrain Olympic Committee and the Public Commission for the Protection of Marine Resources, Environment and Wildlife. The conference aims at building on current relations between GCC States through establishing new grounds for exchange of practical and scientific collaboration amongst national sports federations, and promotes interaction between specialists in the fields of environment and sport to engage in upgrading national sports achievements to higher levels.
This conference is being held from 21st to 23rd October at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, with delegates from various fields belonging to both private and public institutions. Papers presented in the conference include experiences associated with both areas of sports and environment such as planning and organizing events, and the role of the private sector and the academic curriculum in including environmental concepts within activities and sports facilities, in order to provide a suitable environment for the establishment of sports friendly environments.
