A winning combination
When sports and sustainability team up
Dan Schupsky, Assistant Swim Coach at the University of Pennsylvania, had been a passionate advocate of the environment in his earlier career as a high school science teacher. However, he’d never linked green issues and his coaching work — until he started his studies at Penn’s MES program.
“A little lightning bolt went off!” Dan says. “I envisioned an eco-rep program, in which student athletes on each team would lead student-based projects to make our sports teams more sustainable.”
