The only World Cup

So Friday is the beginning of the FIFA World Cup. Thinking I would like to give it a biology slant I looked for some interesting sites that could possibly be used for discussions on Eco friendly world sporting events and the issue of sustainability or perhaps look for diverse sites that could be used for a possible Group 4 project.

There are big issues relating to such global events as the FIFA WCup, Olympics, Commonwealth Games etc and the damage they can inflict on the global environment. They have little if any lasting economic affect on the host city / country beyond the feel good factor though they doadd to such things as Global Warming.

When there is  such a large number of South Africans struggle for such basics as clean water, proper health care etc, is the world right in focusing on football? Don’t have the answers but perhaps your students do?
