    VANCOUVER, Jan. 23 /CNW/ - The worlds of sport and environment will
gather in Vancouver from March 29 - 31, 2009 at the Vancouver Convention &
Exhibition Centre to learn more about global innovations that are helping
sport reduce its environmental footprint.
    The World Conference on Sport and the Environment is convened biennially
by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in collaboration with the United
Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The 2009 WCSE in Vancouver is being
presented in partnership with the Province of British Columbia and marks the
first time this event is being held in North America.
    The theme for the 2009 conference is Innovation and Inspiration:
Harnessing the Power of Sport for Change. Participants will be provided a
timely opportunity to help determine how sport steps up to the challenge of
advancing environmental progress, even during a time of economic uncertainty.

Movement in the field of sustainable development.
