ANOC hosts Third Sustainability Workshop for NOCs
ANOC kicked off 2023 well aligned with its mission to facilitate the cooperation and exchange of knowledge between NOCs. The organization hosted the third Sustainability Workshop on the 9th January, continuing the successful series of online meetings which started in November 2022. The Sustainability Workshops are a result of ANOC’s partnership with The Toolbox aiming to support NOCs create and implement their own sustainability programmes.
The Workshop was hosted by ANOC and The Toolbox and covered the content of steps 5 and 6 of the ANOC Sustainability Handbook which is available to all NOCs and can be found on the sustainability section of the ANOC website.
Following the same structure of the previous meetings, participants were divided into breakout groups, where a moderator guided them through the templates and proposed reflections related to the topics treated so that they could have a tangible outcome of each workshop.
In the end of the session, Eng. Fahad Ebrahim Muhana, from the Qatar Olympic Committee shared a case study showcasing the Qatari experience in implementing its Sustainability program. The exchange of best practices between NOCs was a request of participating NOCs and is in place in every edition of the Sustainability Workshop in order to illustrate the themes discussed. The next workshop will take place on the 15th of February 2023.
