These Games are Not Green! Booklet

Booklet produced by AWARE entitled "THESE GAMES ARE NOT GREEN!". It contains information about the negative environmental impacts of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, including loss of biodiversity, destruction of natural habitats, energy and water demands, mass transportation, increased greenhouse gas emissions and waste production, and a lack of institutional accountability. It also lists potential solutions to these problems, such as reusing pre-existing Olympic facilities, eliminating or restricting sliding sports, making the Games spectator-free, and holding host countries to high environmental standards.

Whistler Welcomes the World But ... at what cost? Pamphlet

Whistler Watch pamphlet entitled "Whistler Welcomes the World But ... at what cost?" produced during the lead-up to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. It details the environmental, social, and democratic costs of the Games, including habitat loss due to construction, pollution caused by transportation, increased energy and water usage, generation of waste, shortage of housing, financial costs, erosion of the civil liberties of those opposing the Games, violence against women, the heightened nationalism of sport, and the use of unceded First Nations territory. It also includes a list of proposed changes for future Olympic games and ways that people can take action.
