Sustainability at Explorathon 2017: GoGolf goes public!

Thursday 05 October 2017

“One Night, Unlimited Discovery”! Explorathon is an EU funded initiative supporting public engagement with research at several Scottish Universities.

Over 1700 people explored the research underway at the University of St Andrews on 29th September. One of the stalls showcased the research from the EU Erasmus+ co-funded programme GoGolf. The programme examines what the contributions of golf and of sport more widely might be to health and wellbeing, and exploring how we might increase access and participation in golf for young people in five European countries. These questions help us support the golf sector to address social sustainability challenges.
