It provides a detailed presentation of the two constituent dimensions of RM: the risk society and the ecological modernization (EM) perspectives. It discusses how both dimensions resonate with certain approaches to environmentalism and, more particularly, how EM sits alongside the discourses that have been used to promote the environmental credentials of sport mega-events such as the Olympic Games.
